I don’t know what the future will hold for e-publishing, but one thing is clear: The old gatekeepers of literature have lost their grip on the reading public and on the authors who produce that work. While the older readers (myself included) may grouse about the loss of the “real” book, younger generations have already embraced this technology and are moving ahead in exciting ways.
The Publishing Center at The Graduate Institute, under the direction of Author and Publisher Robin Moore, will be offering this technology to colleagues and faculty who wish to design, create and distribute their written work to a world-wide audience on the Amazon.com platform. Those enrolled in the Writing and Oral Traditions Program can now receive the creative guidance and technical expertise they need to make their publishing dreams a reality.
No longer is freedom of the press only for the person who owns one. Any author can now connect to a world of readers, hungry for fresh ideas and insights.
The Graduate Institute has always operated on the leading edge of emerging fields. The newly-designed program in Writing and Oral Traditions offers a holistic approach to combining spoken and written word and sharing that work with readers world-wide, recognizing that successful publishing is an integral part of living the writer’s life.
Robin Moore is an author and storyteller and serves on the faculty of The Graduate Institute as a Program Coordinator for The Writing and Oral Traditions Master’s Program, The Applied Storytelling Certificate Program, The Master of Arts in Learning and Thinking Program and as Director of The Graduate Institute Publishing Center. He holds a B.A. in Journalism from Pennsylvania State University and a Masters in Oral Traditions from The Graduate Institute.
