Book Publishing Workshop

Program description

Leland F. Raymond, Publisher of CyPress Publications, offers grade-specific “book publishing workshops” in which all aspects of the publishing process are demonstrated to the students. Using the students’ own writing and other artwork, students will create electronic files for book interiors and covers. Upon request, these files will be submitted to a commercial book printer, and the printed books may be purchased by the students as keepsake items.
