DID YOU KNOW…?
MSc Publishing spearheads the #NapierBigRead!
A group of dedicated Publishing students work with their Programme Leader to share the joy of reading! Their aim is to connect staff and students at Edinburgh Napier University through the shared experience of reading a book. This year we’ve asked everyone to vote on the next #NapierBigRead!
The #NapierBigRead Shortlist!
- Dark Star – Lorna Moon
Olalla – Robert Louis Stevenson
Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde – Robert Louis Stevenson
The Thirty-Nine Steps – John Buchan
Which one will you vote for?
We invite all students and staff across all our campuses to VOTE for our next #NapierBigRead!
Voting stations are on each campus, with our #NapierBigRead team on hand – on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram – to answer any questions.
We launched the 4 shortlisted titles during Book Week Scotland and our election campaign is on NOW!
There is still time to vote. (Vote as many times as you like!)
Your vote counts! Please VOTE!
Together with @ayearofconversation2019 (and their Creative Director Tom Pow) we have been awarded funding to organise events around ‘Culture of Encounter: Creative Community Conversations’.
Working with Scottish Book Trust, the University of St Andrews, the University of Glasgow and the University of the West of Scotland, our project will raise awareness of the value of reading to help us understand ourselves more and enhance connection with others.
Look out for details of events soon.
Meantime, why not take time out to talk this weekend.
Saturday 11 May 2019 is ‘A Day of Conversation’.

A huge congratulations to our MSc Publishing students who graduated yesterday!
All of us here in the programme team wish you every success in your Publishing careers.
Here’s to the class of 2018!
This is a lovely time of year when we have two cohorts of students!
We have our current class of 2017/18, who have just completed their dissertation (and no doubt breathed a huge sigh of relief), and our new class of 2018/19, who are about to join us in September!
For our current students – here are some photos to remind you of the good times.
For our incoming students – be prepared to work hard but, as with any good publishing career, be assured that there will also be many laughs along the way!
We hope you all – current and new – enjoy your time with us!
In honour of the centenary of some women getting the vote in the UK, we are proud to reveal some of the new books that we are publishing in 2018.
All Scottish, all amazing women, all talented writers. Mostly forgotten.
We are proud to be bringing their work back into the light.
We are also publishing some male writers this year, but we will tell you about them another day…
