The Los Angeles Review of Books Publishing Workshop is a five-week intensive, multidisciplinary summer program that prepares its fellows for the present and future of publishing and related fields. While we offer a standard curriculum to each year’s cohort, we also customize that curriculum according to the stated interests and background of the admitted fellows. We are therefore interested in knowing what areas most interest you and why and what goals you hope to accomplish by attending this workshop.
The 2023 program will be online, and will run from June 20, 2023 through July 21, 2023. The program runs Monday through Friday, 9AM - 3PM (PST).
All applications are due on March 31, 2023 by 11:59pm PST . Applicants will be notified of their status by the end or April, 2023.
