“The environment here is wonderful. Our tutors, guest speakers and associated staff have all been kind, pragmatic and entertaining. I imagine we’ll come to the end of the year feeling prepared for a career in publishing and considerably wiser.”

sucheta_newsletter“I came to the Whitireia publishing programme with a love for books and an interest in developing a career in the industry. One month in and nothing has changed! It seems that every graduate I’ve met has had only good things to say about Whitireia publishing, and that is a reflection on the quality of this course. The tutors and guest speakers have a wealth of knowledge they are happy to share, the classes are engaging and the class environment is so collaborative. In just a short amount of time, I’ve learnt so much about publishing and the industry and I can’t wait to see what else the year has in store for us.”

“As someone who was already an enthusiast of language, I have found learning more about the rules and principles underpinning the English language to be immensely enjoyable. From the softly-spoken yet professorial tutelage of Simon Minto, to the multitudinous volumes written on the scholarly subject of style, this course throws light on the obtuse, overwritten, and overwrought language we are subjected to on a daily basis. Evidently, I still have much to learn.”
