The  Book Production process is a CLI program focused on editing and designing the manuscripts of authors who have completed two semesters of the Poetry Publishing Class and are in the process of completing their manuscript.

The Book Production Process occurs over an eight-week period during which Proofreading Editors (PE), Cover Designers (CD), and Interior Layout Designers (ILD) work with authors to bring their book to life. Editors, designers, and authors are expected to collaborate with and respond to each other within 48 hours throughout the the process.

At the end, editors/designers will provide authors with all design files (cover and interior) and host one final edit meeting (after the proof has been printed).  

We are excited to partner with you! 

Team Expectations

PEs, CDs, and ILDs are expected to respond in a timely manner to CLI students (within 48 hours) and provide students with their completed cover and interior files by the end of the 8-week period.
