This course will include a brief introduction to the history, latest trends, and the procedures involved in literary publishing. Its major focus is the students’ participation in the multi-stage process of publication. Under the guidance of the instructor, students will participate in editorial meetings to discuss and decide the topic and content of at least one issue of a literary venue associated with the HMW department. They will learn to develop and communicate their ideas as editors and present their decisions persuasively. Students will also research, write, and edit articles and creative pieces in response to a specific feature topic for the literary venue. They will also learn to perform close readings and develop editing skills. Lastly, they will be involved in the visual design and promotion of the publication.
