Students work with professional authors and illustrators to create their own writing and artwork, which is published in small runs by professional houses.

Proficiency in InDesign is required. Depending on length, each book takes from 18 to 30 hours to put together over a few weeks. Working under the guidance of our art director, you can commit on a project-to-project basis, and can work from home.

This is an ideal opportunity for designers with an eye for color and layout, skill with the required software, and a passion for education and literacy. These projects will also help you build a portfolio of professional work. View examples of previously published books in our gallery of student work.
