On our last night in St. Paul, eight of us from JIST's sales and editorial departments trooped down Seventh Street in search of dinner. We landed at the Liffey pub. Immediately upon entering, I saw a group of people around a table with a sign on it: "Minnesota Book Publishers' Roundtable Meeting." So of course I had to check it out.
I approached the group and talked to the publicity manager from Llewellyn, a new-age publisher in Woodbury. She was excited to hear about this blog and promises to share her experiences for a future post. (Hint: she got her experience through an unpaid internship.)
In the meantime, a great source of information about publishing careers in Minnesota is the Minnesota Book Publishers' Roundtable's website.
