    2015 MAGAZINE ALUMNI

    The Yale Publishing Course exceeded my expectations. I was so inspired by the fellow attendees I met and the speakers I heard from. I’m an editor for a small non-profit organization, yet I found so many of the week’s lessons applicable to my own work.

    Sara Camp Arnold - Managing Editor - Southern Foodways Alliance

    The course was very inclusive of all what we could need in running magazines; from marketing aspects, sales, content, legal, and progressive thinking planning, with all the right set of speakers who are truly experts in the matter.

    Iman Ben Chaibah - Founder & Editor-in-chief - Sail Publishing & Sail Magazine

    The Yale Publishing Course is an extraordinary opportunity to learn from, and converse with, the best minds in publishing today in the most beautiful, distinguished setting. Chatting over lunch and marveling over the detailed presentations, I feel like I’ve met my dream-team board of advisors.

    Michelle Herrera Mulligan - Editor-in-Chief - Cosmopolitan For Latinas

    The Yale Publishing Course brings together some of the most innovative and dynamic leaders from the magazine media world all in one place.  The course provided a unique “look behind the curtain”.  I am definitely walking away with so much new knowledge that I plan to put into action at my company.

    Michael Krans - Associate Publisher, Sales - Harper’s Bazaar

    What an incredible, truly immersive experience! Everything is planned just right - from the speakers themselves, to the pacing of the topics, to the timing of the sessions. In those five days, I got a career’s worth of excellent insight, advice, and amazing connections.

    Ann Taylor Pittman - Executive Editor of Food - Cooking Light

    I was amazed by the array of presenters and sessions during the course. They all presented a vast amount of knowledge and information, so much more than I imagined would be possible in a week. I am taking away two notebooks filled with everything I learned and will be bringing back to my magazine. Anyone who is serious about a future in magazine publishing should consider this course, whether they are with a small magazine or a big one, B2C or B2B. The information you gain can be applied to everyone.

    Ellen Rogers - Editor - Key Communications Inc., USGlass magazine

    As a small/midsized independent publisher, it was great to get out of my bubble and hear about what other publishers are doing. From this course I have come away with actionable ideas and a new network of friends in the industry.

    Jessica Shanken - Vice President of Business Development - M. Shanken Communications, Inc.


    2015 BOOK ALUMNI

    This course is a must for anyone who is in a leadership position in the publishing world. The knowledge gained through an impressive array of presenters and an equally impressive group of participants was invaluable.

    Peg MacDonald - Director of Technical Assistance & Brokering Services - Capitol Region Education Council

    I have enjoyed the most memorable week at the Yale Publishing Course. Every single session provided something of value to consider in the course of my daily activities as a publisher. It was truly a “delight” on many levels and I head back to my company with renewed enthusiasm for what I do and with many ideas on how to best tackle the various facets of my profession.

    Andrea Nattrass - Publisher - Pan Macmillan South Africa

    YPC has offered me the opportunity to share an intense week of training with publishers around the world. At the end of the week, I cannot say from whom I learned more: the professors or the attendants.

    Alejandro Fernandez - General Manager - Spanish Association of University Presses

    YPC enabled me to step back from the day-to-day and really think long term about my business.  It encourages agile thinking and sharpens business management skills - providing tools to achieve strong leadership and help define clear direction for your future business.  Highly recommended. 

    Anne Landa - Vice President & Group Publisher - Walter Foster & Walter Foster Jr.

    YPC exceeded my expectations, and I had high expectations. I wouldn’t have thought I could learn so much and be so inspired in one week. Everyone had so much vitality and optimism, and fed off the course and off each other. I’m sure great things will come out of this course, whether through new partnerships or through the implementation of new and creative strategies in our organizations and work. The best part of the course was getting out of our silos and learning from and sharing meals with professionals working in all sectors of the industry, from Wall Street bankers to digital innovators to designers, and from the most niche not-for-profits to the multi-nationals.

    Kate Hampton - Editor - Kwani Trust

    The formidable expertise and creativity that runs through the YPC program will shape my contributions to publishing for years to come.  The chance to learn, share, and contemplate is something I wish for all colleagues, and YPC provided the perfect inspirational setting to do just that.

    Christie Henry - Editorial Director - University of Chicago Press

    YPC was like an idea storm! Session after session, I was blown away by the brilliant speakers and their vast experiences. I was inspired and challenged by so many incredible insights. The class was awesome. I thoroughly enjoyed making some really great connections! I would recommend this course to any publishing professional - no hesitations.

    Deborah Ahenkorah - Founder and Executive Director - Golden Baobab, African Bureau for Children’s Stories


    2010-2014 MAGAZINE ALUMNI

    The course has really changed so much for me – the way I look at every story and every page has changed in ways big and small. It really was the best thing I have ever done in my career.

    Brodee Myers-Cooke - Editor-in-Chief, Australian Good Taste, Australia

    The Yale Publishing Course is a transformative experience. I had the opportunity to not only listen to leaders in their field, but to talk with them one-on-on as well. I met peers from around the world who influenced my thinking and have become a network of support and talent that I will tap for years to come. I return to my magazine with concrete new business ideas, a to-do list that’s a mile long, and a renewed passion for publishing.

    Jennifer Owens – Editorial Director, Working Mother, Bonnier Working Mother Media, USA

    This is the most up to date course I have ever attended. The speakers really know the industry and the issues it faces. This is why I go back to Greece armed with great insight and valuable advice.

    Stella Rapti – Editor-in-Chief, Attica Media Publications S.A., Greece

    An in depth practical experience for editors worldwide, a fantastic way of sharing learning and everyday problems, and a way to connect with publishers from all over the world. This is the real thing, not for beginners.

    Roberto Schiattino – Editor-in-Chief, ACCESS, Chile

    YPC provided me with insight and information that I wouldn’t ordinarily be privy to – consumer marketing, editorial brand challenges, monetization of a brand from the editorial perspective, visual thinking and much, much more.

    Stefanie Rapp – Associate Publisher, Hearst Magazines, USA

    A great combination of speakers with successful experience in large and small publishing houses, with different business models. This gives a three-dimensional picture of the market of the publishing business. Very good mix of strategic issues and discussions of specific issues in details. Brilliant level of presentation skills of speakers.

    Olena Lobova – Director, Perekhid Publishing House, Ukraine

    I found that having the opportunity to reflect on the future of publishing at the Yale Publishing Course, surrounded by accomplished colleagues of all ages, perspectives, and nationalities, was an incredible experience. Networking was definitely a big part of the experience, and in that regard I feel quite satisfied: I left New Haven with new friends and lifetime contacts.

    Odette Rodríguez, Content and Media Coordinator, Puerto Rico at Universia, Puerto Rico

    A one of a kind cutting-edge experience; the #YPC2012!

    Hala Al Gergawi – Managing Editor, AnaZahra.com, Abu Dhabi Media Company, United Arab Emirates

    An overall great experience and opportunity to meet and get to know some of the brightest thinkers and professionals in the industry with lots of ideas exchanged.

    Adam Inglis – Digital Content Coordinator, Ausmed Education, Australia

    The Yale Publishing Course was informational, affirming, and re-invigorating. A fantastic week!

    Karen Rodriguez – Regional Vice President, Morris Media Network, USA

    Worth every cent of my own money. Yes, I paid for this course myself and the 10,000 miles of air travel is worth it!

    Thomas Chong – Author and Founder, Centre for Social Innovation, Singapore

    It was an extraordinary experience. The speakers and the students gave me a very in depth insight of what is happening in the magazine industry all over the world.

    Maria Daza – Dean, School of Journalism, Universidad del Desarrollo, Chile

    At Yale Publishing Course you will get overwhelmed at the beginning, deeply intrigued by the middle and absolutely satisfied by the end.

    André Petry – International Correspondent, Editora Abril, Brazil

    To experience the Yale Publishing course is to learn from experts in the industry. One is inspired by what actually happens in the outside world of publishing. Each time we operate the new media platforms, we realize that the tasks involved to make all these possible are impressively herculean. Now, we can say, we know who is behind all these progressive measures.

    Christine Martine Dayrit – Travel Journalist, The Philippine Star, Philippines

    The Yale Publishing Course gave me an opportunity to put my day-to-day duties aside, and study the magazine industry as a whole—where it is today, and where it’s going. I came back to work on Monday eager to share what I’d learned with my colleagues, and to help my publication move forward.

    Julia Edelstein – Associate Editor, Real Simple, Time, Inc., USA

    The wide experience this course taught me was enough to start my own successful publishing agency that comes from a solid background.

    Mohamed Al Matroushi – Owner, Al Takhayul Publisher and Distributor, United Arab Emirates

    Hearing such accomplished professionals speak was an incredible experience and I walked away from the experience not just inspired, but also armed with ideas and new strategies to build my magazine brand. The experience of interacting with the other attendees, however, was just as valuable – there was a real sense of community and I loved being able to meet other publishers from across the globe.

    Catherine Neville – Publisher & Editor, FEAST, Lee Enterprises, USA

    The Yale Publishing Course is inspiring, thought-provoking, and truly transformational. I returned to the office more energized than ever before and couldn’t wait to start sharing new ideas. Every media company should consider sending a representative to soak in the conversation about critical issues facing the publishing industry today and into the future.

    Sarah Spagnolo – Digital Projects Editor, Travel+Leisure, USA

    The course was invaluable, giving me dedicated time to step back from my day-to-day work realities and take a more strategic and innovative view of the future of publishing; the networking opportunities were fantastic with many new friendships formed. It was great meeting like-minded publishing professionals from all over the world and sharing experiences, challenges and business dilemmas or solutions as a collective. I returned feeling enriched and empowered.

    Jennifer Heeger - Editor of Siyasiza and SiyaOnline First National Bank, South Africa

    In the days after completing the course, I already felt the new knowledge I gained informing decisions I made at work. I feel like I know where the industry is going – and even better – what steps my magazines needs to take next to prepare for it.

    Emily Parsons, Managing Editor, The American Prospect, USA

    Attending the Yale Publishing Course was a singular experience. For me, [it was] quite life changing. Imagine being in a room with some of the greatest minds in the media industry today - and you get to pick their brain, listen to their vision and make them contacts? You cannot put a price on this kind of experience.

    Samantha Page – Editor, O, The Oprah Magazine South Africa, Associated Hearst, South Africa

    The Yale Publishing Course is amazing, and its scope is comprehensive. Topics were carefully selected to address key contemporary issues and opportunities within the publishing industry. Practical solutions were presented, ideas were sparked, and the credibility and expertise of the speakers was exemplary.

    Debbie Johnson - Managing Director, Leadership and Adult Publishing, LifeWay Christian Resources, USA

    Cutting edge, smart, relevant, prophetic. The access to the top media talent was unparalleled, and the scope and depth of the students from 21 countries added the important global perspective every step of the way. If you want context, contact and content for all things magazine publishing, the Yale Publishing Course is essential. Utterly inspiring, to both sides of the masthead.

    Valerie Cruice – Special Projects Editor, Luxe Interiors+Design, Sandow Media

    I’ve attended dozens of professional courses in the past, but the Yale Publishing Course was by far the most valuable and well managed I’ve ever experienced. I would definitely return again.

    Bruce Helander, Editor-in-Chief, The Art Economist, USA

    The Yale Publishing Course is an essential program for anyone currently in the magazine business. Whether they be a seasoned publisher or a first time editor, the breadth of content delivered checks every box and provides all the ammunition a media professional needs in the present climate. The speakers were world-class and really produced the ‘wow’ factor that you look for. The networking and one-to-one interaction with other magazine professionals and industry leaders were unrivaled.

    Ty Francis - Publisher, Corporate Secretary Magazine, Cross Border USA


    2010-2014 BOOK ALUMNI

    The Yale Publishing Course was a good way to quickly and dynamically immerse oneself in the latest issues facing the industry by hearing from and sharing with others in the trenches.

    Kate Brown - Chief Operating Officer, Yale University Press, USA

    My time at YPC has already proven valuable…It really was a terrifically enriching experience and I am grateful for the opportunity to have participated.

    Michael Szczerban - Editor, Simon & Schuster, USA

    My week at Yale was an intensely stimulating experience, and one that I am sure will shape the way that I do my job in the months and years ahead.

    George Walkley – Head of Digital, Hachette UK, United Kingdom

    The Yale Publishing Course brings together a refreshing blend of diverse professionals from around the world, each bringing valuable insight to add to that of the fabulous faculty. I enjoyed the whole experience immensely and am coming away with an enlarged and better view of the future of publishing.

    Jessica Wong – Associate Editor, Howard Books, Simon & Schuster, USA

    The Yale Publishing Course was the best professional development experience I have had in my two decade career. The speakers were intelligent and engaging, staff were extremely organized and professional, and fellow participants were diverse, smart, and enjoyable. Best week I have ever spent away from the office.

    Jeffrey Felice – Chief Operating Officer, Logical Operations, USA

    YPC was a great experience for me. I am truly enlightened by this one week course. I only wish that it would be longer and more in-depth. I come from the service industry that works with Publishers and this course has opened my eyes to key issues that publishers have to deal with. I am glad I took this course.

    Ramnik Singh - Account Manager, Q2ABillSmith, UK

    Incredible. It was a wonderful time. Here, we could not only learn, study and think our business, but also meet people and make friendships that will last a lifetime.

    Rachel Agavino Dias – Subeditor, Editora Sextante, Brazil

    The course allowed me to see in a new way that I am part of an industry that has both documented and shaped cultures across the globe. I am energized to seize this time of upheaval to find new ways to keep our industry relevant and vital. I also left with concrete tools to bring back to my team. More importantly, I leave the course knowing that I am better prepared to lead my company through necessary transformation.

    Janet Barnes – Director of Publishing, Bentley Publishers, USA

    Getting publishers from all over the world in one room for an intensive one-week course in Publishing was a unique experience and very useful. Getting people’s different perspectives, both the speakers and my colleagues gave me a new approach which I can take back with me. I highly recommend.

    Alexandra Columbus – Director of Acquisitions, Nova Science Publishers, Inc., USA

    It validated what we were doing, taught what we weren’t and inspired to explore more. And of course it was a diverse class to meet and make friends with.

    Atiya Zaidi – Publisher, Ratna Sagar P. Ltd., New Delhi, India

    YPC provided me with a new and broader perspective on the business of publishing. Now that I have taken it I have a much better understanding of the challenges my colleagues in different departments face and believe I will be able to work with them in new ways to achieve our common goals. Most importantly, I learned valuable new ways to evaluate challenges and plan solutions.

    Melanie Falick – Publishing Director, STC Craft, Abrams Books, USA

    The Yale Publishing Course helped me see the connections between the history of publishing and its future, providing me with the tools not only to successfully manage my business but also to play a role in the larger publishing community.

    Martin Burton – Founder & President, London Town Press, USA

    To refer to a famous book title: If you are a publisher, this certainly is one of the courses to attend before you die.

    Armin Sinnwell – Publisher, wissenmedia/Bertelsmann, Germany

    The best publishing program of its kind in the United States: ever evolving, ever new.

    Kevin DiCamillo – Freelance Editor, USA

    The Yale Publishing Course was an intense helicopter flight over the international publishing landscape. The course offered splendid views of what is going on in publishing all over the world. It broadened my view on publishing and deepened my insight in a lot of relevant topics.

    Eline Crijns – Publisher, Boom uitgevers, The Netherlands

    My head is still full of ideas and inspiration after the Yale Publishing Course. I have already told many people about it and it’s not even a week since I was there! A lot of our new strategy has been validated and I’ve been given renewed vigor to push on; but many new ideas were presented, which I’m sure we can incorporate into the plan. The faculty presented a great mix of theory, experience and inspiration and in the fellow participants I met not only a number of useful contacts, but also, I’m sure, friends.

    Nicki Howard – Deputy Publisher, Gill & Macmillan, Ireland

    I came to search for answers to a specific question in mind, when I left my mind was full with the promise of a good possibility of reaching my goal.

    Nelleke Nix – Director & Owner, Nelleke Nix Studio Gallery Press Inc., USA

    I have been in book publishing a very long time, and have attended dozens if not hundreds of seminars, events, and book fairs. The benefits from attending the Yale Publishing Course stand in an entirely different category, far above anything else available.

    Ann Arnow – Executive Vice President, Bridge Publications, Inc., USA

    My week at the Yale Publishing Course re-energized me. It may be “anxious enthusiasm” I have now for the future of book publishing, but enthusiasm it is! I learned so much from not only the top leaders in the business but also from my peers in the course, with whom I shared problems, ideas, goals, and an excellent esprit de corps!

    Pam McClanahan – Director, Minnesota Historical Society Press, Borealis Books, USA

    A wonderful opportunity to learn from some of the best minds in publishing while sharing ideas with peers across the globe. The week was an intense, provocative and intelligent exploration of contemporary issues affecting all parts of the publishing business.

    Benjamin James - Publisher, Macmillan Publishers, Victoria, Australia

    A spectacular course. It was the single richest week of my professional career – filled with informative, engaging speakers, new publishing colleagues and friends, and incredibly thought-provoking ideas. Throughout the rich, balanced, jam-packed week, I kept pinching myself that I was fortunate enough to attend.

    Jen McLaughlin - Publisher’s Agent, First Church of Christ, Scientist, USA

    Being able to discuss challenges and opportunities with international colleagues was extremely valuable and inspiring – and the discussion will continue! The presenters were inspiring. Attending the Course should be a top priority for each and every publishing professional around the world.

    Fredrik Rahka - Publishing Manager, Otava Publishing Company Ltd., Finland

    A very special week. The speakers, the Yale team, and my colleagues were perfect. It was really good to learn directly from some of the top marketing experts about future trends for the publishing industry.

    Marcos Simas - Editor, Christianity Today Brazil, Niteroi, Brazil

    A most exciting and intense week! It gave me the opportunity to reflect on some of the things we are doing now and those that are still in the pipeline. The excellent mix of speakers and students from diverse national and publishing backgrounds provided a very unique perspective on issues we are all facing.

    Gbenro Adegbola - Managing Director, Evans Publishers Nigeria Ltd., Ibadan, Nigeria

    Operating a small press from Portland, OR, I have often felt on the periphery of the publishing industry. YPC gave me the tools to better understand and participate in the larger publishing community. This will no doubt equate to increased revenues!

    Rhonda Hughes - Publisher, Hawthorne Books, USA

    Conferences are always a crap-shoot:  How will the food be? The meeting room? Will we be exhausted? Will it be well organized? I’m pleased to say that the Publishing Course went off like a dream. I learned so much, and made great friends at the same time.

    Mary Choteborsky - Publishing Manager, Editor, Crown Archetype, Crown Business, Crown Forum, Harmony Books, USA
