WoodWing to conduct 2-day tablet publishing workshops across the U.S. beginning in Columbus, Ohio on April 14

Digital publishing solutions company WoodWing Software will begin a series of Tablet Publishing Workshops around the U.S. with a stop in Columbus, Ohio on April 14-15.

“In just two days, we’ll take the attendees through the entire process from start to finish,” Shawn Duffy, Managing Director of WoodWing USA, said in the company's release. “They’ll create an entire digital publication from scratch using WoodWing’s Tablet Publishing Solution. Some of the most popular magazine titles in the world are being published to tablets using WoodWing’s tools – everything from Time and Sports Illustrated to Better Homes and Gardens and Parents. Those attending the workshop will see how easy it is to do the same thing.”
