ACP Publishing 101

Video Archive

ACP’s Publishing 101 Webinar series shares publishing knowledge and practices for new publishers, junior staff, and senior professionals at publishing companies—anyone working in the industry interested in learning more about the business side of publishing. Publishing 101 aims to be approachable, provide expertise from trusted sources within the industry, and extend professional development opportunities beyond ACP's usual general meetings. The series also provides a forum for fledgling industry professionals to discuss their own experiences and perspectives.

Registrants provided questions to help structure each presentation, and discussion questions were asked live. Below are archived recordings of the presentations and Q&A discussions. These recordings are now reserved for ACP members and will be distributed as part of the next Publishing 101 series. If you are staff at an ACP member firm or a previous Publishing 101 participant and would like to request access, please contact ACP at the email below. Copies of each session's Communications Access Realtime Translations (CART) are also linked below each video. Thank you to The Captioning Group for providing this service.

More information is available on ACP's website.

ACP's 2020 Publishing 101 series is edited by Trish Osuch. ACP's 2021 Publishing 101 series is edited by Dani MacDonald.
