Since its founding ten years ago in 2005, Undergraduate Students for Publishing has grown into a multi-faceted organization. The club as a whole is often affectionately called “Pub Club,” and is run by an executive board which oversees general meetings, the book projects, and the literary magazine. In Spring 2015, there were approximately 60 members in the club, but all club events, workshops, and the book launch are open to the entire Emerson College community.
Members apply for positions and then move up, if they wish, as they gain experience. While there are specific positions, this board oversees everything and often takes on extra tasks, committing several hours per week to running this club. The co-presidents are the two members with the most experience in a given semester.
Wilde Press Staff
In 2009, Wilde Press was created to oversee a new aspect of the club, the book project. Soon, this was increased to two book projects a semester. This section of the club strives to mimic a publishing house on a smaller scale. Publisher positions are held by senior members of staff, usually the club’s co-presidents. Heads and assistant positions are applied for, but teams are open to anyone at Emerson College.

Relatively new (Spring 2012), Generic is an outlet for those who write genre fiction. Originally run, edited, and published by the executive board, Generic received its own staff in Fall 2014. Applications are required for all positions, and staff must reapply each semester. Workshops for different genres are held once a month and are open to any student at Emerson College.
