a haven for books that matter

From Small Press to Big Career

Teaching the art and craft of publishing is at the heart of Lookout’s mission. Throughout our first decade, we’ve worked with the Publishing Laboratory at UNCW to initiate a new generation of editors, designers, publicists, and nonprofit leaders. Join alumni now at Hub City Press, Orion Magazine, and the Minnesota Center for Book Arts as they discuss how their experiences in our publishing program helped prepare them for success in the literary world. They’ll offer advice for breaking into and navigating the industry, as well as for starting your own ventures.

This project is supported in part by an award from the National Endowment for the Arts.
