A production assistant will work with copy editors, typographers, binders, and designers to help with the actual construction of a book. As more and more publishers realize that an unusual design or arresting cover art cn help sell books, this area of publishing is getting more fun and inventive. Of course, good copy editors have always been and will always be essential to publishing of any sort.

About On Writing and Publishing
On Writing and Publishing will address PCV and RPCV questions on what to write, how to write, and how to get published with practical and clear (non-academic) prose. I will help you decide on how to tell your Peace Corps story, as well as, other tales that you would like to tell. The blog will also provide information on editors, agents, and what magazines and publishing houses might consider your writings. — John Coyne (1962–64)
