Conceived by Sherry Chen in November 2014, Publishing Insights aims to introduce the latest news about publishing industry around the world, with the intention to engage the online literary community and provide an open space for discussion. Updated twice every week until March 2015. Currently not updating.

Sherry is particularly into academic publishing, and she aspires to develop a dual career in publishing and the academia someday. She is the Founder and Editor-in-Chief of Mercury – HKU Journal of Undergraduate Humanities, a formal Hong Kong University Press intern, and a TED translator. Fascinated about today’s changing publishing landscape, she decides to dedicate herself into posting news and writing reviews on this website, as preparation for entering the industry after completing a Bachelor of Arts from the University of Hong Kong and an MPhil student linguistics at Oxford University. With the motto “plus ça change, plus c’est la même chose”, she is determined to explore what are the fundamental changes and constants  in contemporary (and very occasionally, historical) publishing.
