This is Stephanie, the new production intern! It is the end of my second week here at University of Toronto Press and I’ve already learned so much about how things work at a scholarly press. The people at UTP have been extremely welcoming!
These first two weeks have been really exciting for me, learning about different jobs and responsibilities in the production department. Some of my tasks have included checking proofs and attending meetings where I have been able to learn about the scheduling and marketing of UTP books. I have also had the opportunity to see how things work in some of the other departments such as editorial and marketing. And of course I have become experienced in the wonderful world of filing!
I am currently on my way to completing the Publishing Certificate at Ryerson University. While many classes have provided me with extensive knowledge about the publishing industry, my intern experience at UTP is allowing me to learn what it is like to apply these skills day to day.
My internship is off to a great start and I can’t wait to find out what the next few months have in store for me!
