Module overview

This module will introduce you to how books are published, printed and brought to market, and to key issues relating to the regulation of print and digital media. We will focus on publishing books in the United Kingdom, but will make useful comparisons with publishing industries beyond the UK. We will be thinking about fiction and non-fiction works, and we will be focussing on ‘trade publishing’. This module will give you the opportunity to engage with research on all the key aspects of the publishing world.
