I hope the Summer is going well for you and your team, all things considered. Things have been very busy at US employee-owned Westchester Publishing Services despite the headwinds caused by the pandemic within our industry. We are editing and typesetting more projects for our clients this year than in any past year.
Related to the challenges in our industry, though, I wanted to make sure you received the outcomes from the “Publishing Now” webinar that we co-hosted with Publishers Weekly last month. We were fortunate enough to have stellar speakers from Princeton University Press, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, Ingram, and the Book Industry Study Group on our panel, and the feedback to their insights about the supply chain and state of the industry was very favorable.
In case you missed the link to watch the webinar or read the post-webinar assets, you can access that info here.
One outcome for Westchester coming on the heels of the webinar is that many of our clients are engaging with us about different ways of working together. From an increased interest in using our Client Portal to having us handle different types of editorial or production tasks besides those we have handled for them before, we are finding our clients leaning on Westchester more and more for support in the current climate.
Let me know if a quick call about any new ways we can help you would be helpful. Be well.
