As part of my Birkbeck studies, I am involved in publishing a collection of non-fiction stories, in a journal.
The journal is called 46 Square
and will be released on the 4th June.
Here is the provisional artwork for the cover, which I think looks great.
The aim of this module is to give us an insight into the world of publishing, including the job of production manager, editor, art director, copy-editor, proof reader, etc.
My role? Webmaster and blogger, of course!

Reading and choosing submissions has been fun. I’ve learnt how difficult it is to reject pieces. Some of the pieces we rejected were beautifully written, but not quite what we were looking for.
So now, I’ve been on the rejection process from the other side. Will it make me more sanguine about my own rejections? I’m not sure. Wait and see.
