Ms. Barton is teaching the senior seminar for Wesleyan’s Writing Certificate this spring. Formerly the Global Digital Director at Penguin Random House, she founded a start-up inside Penguin called Book Country (www.bookcountry.com), “the most supportive writing and publishing community on the web” – where writers can get feedback on their manuscripts, and if they desire, publish them as e-books. Barton left Penguin in February to work more closely with the NYC tech and start-up community. She is working on a number of undisclosed digital initiatives with major media companies, and serving as strategic advisor to publishing related start-ups in New York City and Silicon Valley.
