I recently graduated from Portland State University with a Masters in Book Publishing. As part of my degree, I co-managed the design department at Ooligan Press, the trade publisher affiliated with the program.
In addition to design, my particular focus was on publishing for young adults. One of my goals is to launch my own YA press, publishing short stories and novels written by teens authors, for teen readers. Look for more information on Trampoline Press in early 2012.
As if a Masters degree in Publishing isn't enough, I am also a grad student in Library and Information Studies at Florida State University, with a focus in, what else, young adult services. This will be either a match made in heaven, or a perfect storm of conflicting interests. Only time will tell.
