What Skills Are Needed in the Publishing World?

Publishing industry website Publishing Perspectives recently posted an article about the types of skills people in the publishing industry need to have as the industry changes. e-Books and tablets are changing the way people read, and print-on-demand services like Blurb and Lulu allow authors without agent representation to publish their own work and even sell it on Amazon.

Based on an interview with Faber CEO Stephen Page, the article posits that “publishing needs ambitious, positive people for whom technology comes naturally, facility with social media is a given and who have a desire to build all manner of services for writers and readers.”


How might understanding professional writing and rhetoric enable you to enter the new “multiverse” of publishing?
