Fall 2021 | CRN: 44867 | Thursdays 6:30-9:15pm | 260 Victoria Street
This graduate-level course provides hands-on experience with the editorial and managerial processes involved in publishing Glassworks, a literary journal in print and electronic formats. Students will study both successful and struggling journals and basic reference guides to determine criteria for success. Working with the instructor and various section editors, students will solicit, evaluate, and select submissions, communicate with contributors about editorial decisions, determine the layout and design of the journal, and distribute the journal. They will also evaluate and produce editorial content in various genres, including book reviews, author interviews, and opinion editorials, for potential publication in the magazine.
