Publishing students feature on HarperCollins blog

From this week, students on the MA Publishing programmes at the Oxford International Centre for Publishing Studies will be featuring on the HarperCollins blog, Fifth Estate.

Students will be contributing regularly to the company's collective blog, which also features contributions from publishers, authors and HarperCollins CEO and Oxford Brookes honorary graduate Victoria Barnsley.  Students have been invited to contribute to the site by its creator and editor-in-chief, Kate Hyde, who is a senior editor at HarperCollins's Press Books.  She is also an alumni of Oxford Brookes Publishing programme.

Welcoming the students onto the blog, Kate writes that:

'Over the next few weeks, 5th Estate will be welcoming 4 bright and shiny new people through its portals.

'Laura, James, Pat and Mae are all currently studying for their Masters in Publishing at Oxford Brookes University. They've each got free reign and will be blogging on anything that takes their fancy, Maybe they'll tell us what its like starting off in the publishing industry or what they're reading, maybe offer a window on student life or new music/TV that's good, or even some gloves-off, fresh and innovative ideas about this all-consuming business of books. Up to them....'

The first of the student blogs, by James Finan, is already available.
