Children’s Publishing Field TripThis week, students taking the Children's Publishing module on the MA in Publishing at the Oxford International Centre for Publishing Studies went on a field trip to London.
Students first visited Usborne Publishing, where they had sessions with Art Director Mary Cartwright (pictured) and Rights Director Elizabeth Wright. Later, students visited the dedicated children's bookshop Tales on Moon Lane, and talked to the shop manager George Hanratty.
The module on Children's Publishing, which is an option on the MAs in Publishing at Oxford Brookes, is a new course for 2007-8. Students have also heard from others involved in the children's book world, including the publisher David Fickling, the children's book critic of the Sunday Times Nicolette Jones, and OUP editor Liz Cross, who have joined the module as visiting speakers.
