Francis McMahon, vice president of marketing, Production Printing Systems at Océ North America, says his company remains committed to this program, which enriches the educational experience for so many budding authors.
“We continued to be impressed by the students who choose to spend their summer vacations as Océ Future Authors because of their passion for writing,” he said. “Our hope is that this experience will result in a group of young adults with lifelong commitments to writing, reading and learning.”
McMahon added that the age of digital publishing has opened up more opportunities for these aspiring authors. “Digital printing technologies are revolutionizing the business of book publishing,” he said. “Publishers can now cost-effectively print books in run lengths anywhere from 1 to 10,000, creating exciting opportunities for new talent—like these future authors—who now can get their works published. As a leader in providing digital printing solutions for the book industry, we are delighted to support the Océ Future Authors Project and to help make the students’ dreams to become published authors a reality.”
