Book Publishing

As long as people continue to read, there will be a future in book publishing. Trends in book publishing employment through 2022 are projected to vary by career segment, according to the U.S. Department of Labor. For example, writers and authors should experience slower than average growth while editors see little or no change in employment. Desktop publishers will see a decline of 5 percent. Future opportunities for writers and editors are expected to be greatest in textbook, technical, and online publications.
