For my graduate thesis in the MS in Publishing program at Pace University, I chose to research how the internet and burgeoning forms of technology have expanded the opportunities for curation, creation, and engagement of content within the young adult genre. I specifically explored the effect on the editorial process and marketing strategy for both publishers and authors.

 

In addition to an overview of the traditional publishing process, my thesis includes valuable statistical information about the genre's audience and various online platforms and strategies emerging as key players within this evolving industry.
