IPNE “Digital Publishing” Tutorial Series:
What you need to know today to plan for publishing tomorrow.
Digital media is the fastest growing market segment in book publishing, and projected trends are that this market will continue to grow exponentially. Every publisher should be thinking about its digital strategy and how best to implement it.
In light of IPNE's mission to participate in education, networking and problem solving and to help our members build and grow their publishing-related businesses, the IPNE Board is pleased to announce a three-part series of tutorials on Digital Publishing.
The tutorials will take place over the course of this fall, winter and spring. Each tutorial will build on the previous one, but each session also stands alone. Participation at any, or all tutorials is welcomed.
