Course programme

The publishing industry of India is one of the largest in the world. An industry that is at once strong and vibrant, both in English and other Indian languages. The phenomenal growth of publishing in the last few decades, the coming up of more and more new publishing houses catering to specialised areas and the increasing global visibility of Indian writings have combined to create a need to produce and market books professionally, offering a wide array of lucrative employment opportunities. Today there is a clear need for trained professionals in different areas of publishing-editing, production, design, sales and marketing.

In order to meet this demand, National Book Trust, India (NBT) has been organising courses in publishing throughout the country. An autonomous organisation under the Ministry of Human Resource Development, NBT was established in 1957 by the Government of India, with the objective to promote books and the habit of reading in the country. Besides publishing-which forms its major activity-the NBT is also involved in a number of book promotion activities, like organising book exhibitions, both in India and abroad. NBT also organises the biennial New Delhi World Book Fair, considered to be the largest book fair in the Afro-Asian region.

The 4-week training course in Book Publishing aims to give the participants an overview of publishing. Hands-on experience and interactive sessions form an important segment of the course. This course is designed suitably, keeping in view the needs of the industry in the Indian context. Besides strengthening the knowledge in different aspects of publishing, the course also helps the participants to take up publishing as a career.
