The highly regarded Whitireia publishing programme is New Zealand’s top training course for publishing. It teaches the whole publishing process, from manuscript to bookstore. Developed and run in partnership with publishers, the course is modelled on an apprenticeship. At its heart are practical experience, mentoring and industry contacts.

Our graduates populate the book trade and publishing sector in New Zealand. They have roles in all the major trade publishing houses as publishers, marketing managers, content developers, book editors, publicists and much more. They work for educators, promoters, policy makers and arts organisations. Many run their own businesses.

Perhaps above all, the publishing programme at Whitireia becomes a touchstone for graduates, a challenging and rewarding year during which they make friends for life.

Louisa KaszaI knew from my work at the bookstore that small-press publishers were opening even as larger companies closed their doors, and that publishing needs people who care about its future now more than ever. Studying online was sometimes isolating, but the course content is strong, the structure is practical and my tutors were always helpful.
