Are you interested in learning and making a career in book publishing? Here are the details of admissions for a three-month certification course in book publishing offered by National Book Trust, India.

National Book Trust, India (NBT India) is a Govt organization and is involved in book promotions, sales, organizing events related to books, and many other book-related activities. NBT is offering a three-month certificate course in book publishing.

What is a book publishing course

Since the advent of online book publishing there arose a need for professionals who could work in book publishing companies or start their own publishing houses carrying out various tasks related to book publishing ranging from formatting to designing book layouts, and covers, and creating aesthetic appeals. A book publishing course teaches the aspirants about all these aspects related to book publishing. These courses are generally short-term courses leading to a certificate or diploma in this particular skill.

Many online agencies like NBT, Coursera, Udemy, IGNOU, Skillshare, Alison, IngramSpark Academy, Reedsy, CUH, and many more offer various courses related to book publishing. Many authors take the help of these professionals for formatting and presenting their books in a nice get-up form and pay for it. At the same time, some authors who are well aware of book publishing techniques can prepare the cover of the book themselves and format their book in the desired form and publish it from some online book publishing site without any external help. That type of activity is commonly known as self-publishing.
