Winn Publications is full of exciting job opportunities
Here is a brief description of several career options for those interested in entering the publishing industry
ART & DESIGN
Designing interiors and the cover art is a collaborative effort. The staff reviews the books and meets with the editor and marketing department to create a visual direction and oversee its implementation to both stand up for the book’s essence, attract the target audience, and include the author’s vision.
After a writer’s proposal is received, the editor decides whether or not to pursue the book for publishing. An editor works with the author to turn the manuscript into a finished book. They handle the contracts, proofread the books, and collaborate with internal departments on how to package, market, and publicize the book. Editors need to know what’s trending, what can sell to which target markets, and what’s a fit for their imprints. Editors will also have the opportunity to write blogs for their particular imprint.
Marketing touches a variety of aspects of publishing and bookselling. This department develops and implements creative marketing campaigns including advertising, social media, and bookstore displays. Winn-ing Marketers work directly with the sales team to learn what’s happening in the markets.
Our production department works closely with the other internal departments in order to make sure that each book is meeting our quality standards. They are responsible for planning, prioritizing, and implementing new initiatives for titles and corporate communications. These teams are responsible for maintaining, developing, and producing sites for the various imprints.
The publicity department spreads the word about new books and authors and is the biggest connection between the authors and the media. Publicists pitch newspapers, television, radio stations, websites, bloggers, and influencers with the intention that the press will review our titles and feature stories about forthcoming books and authors. Publicists also help create social media outreach, author tours, author readings, and other events.
Our sales team manages Winn Publications’ relationship with the community of booksellers and readers around the world. The sales team works to make sure that our books are available to readers in every place where books are sold.
