On Friday, March 13, 2:00-3:30 over Zoom, the English Department will host a panel on careers in publishing for graduate and undergraduate students. The panelists will discuss how they made their way to their current positions at the Michigan State University Press. Two of the panelists are MSU alums, so they will be able to speak about their pathway from the MSU English major to a position at the press.
