Publishing is the dissemination of literature, music, or information. It is the activity of making information available to the general public. In some cases, authors may be their own publishers, meaning originators and developers of content also provide media to deliver and display their content. Also, the word "publisher" can refer both to an individual who leads a publishing company or an imprint and to an individual who owns/heads a magazine.
I have been working in publishing on and off since 2001, working for magazines, websites and blogs. I won several awards. I ran my own publishing house and I published 5 books. I can offer consulting on a wide variety of topics related to publishing.
