Three leading figures in Canadian publishing are joining SFU’s Canadian Centre for Studies in Publishing (CCSP) in the master of publishing program.

Designer and art director Roberto Dosil will teach design and production, book publishing, and the history of publishing. Dosil will be director of CCSP Press, a recently-launched company focusing on trade and academic titles. Most recently he chaired Kwantlen University College’s graphic design for marketing program.

Mary Schendlinger, senior editor of Geist magazine, will teach editing and book publishing. She is former managing editor at Harbour Publishing and has edited for many B.C. publishers.

Don Sedgwick, former publisher of Doubleday Canada, Seal Books and Scholastic Canada, will teach publishing management and magazine publishing. President of the Transatlantic Literary Agency, he held senior marketing positions at McClelland & Stewart and Key Porter Books. From 1997–2003 he directed the graduate book and magazine publishing program at Centennial College, Toronto.

“The addition of three faculty from the publishing industry significantly adds to the practical knowledge and breadth of experience we have on the floor in the program,” says CCSP director Rowland Lorimer.

“When combined with CCSP Press and the new electronic journals project at SFU, both of which are like publishing labs for master’s students, we expect our graduates to be very competitive in the job marketplace.” Information:
