(1) ENGL 1010 or ENGL 1220

Course Description

To introduce students to processes and resources for professional publication of writing, this course places students into the complementary roles of editors and writers, and guides them through two instructive publishing projects. As editors, students participate in the process of producing a college literary magazine or other publication. As writers, students employ standard writing and research techniques and their knowledge of the editorial process to prepare their own works for submission to reputable publications. This course, along with various graphic arts courses, also prepares students to plan lay-out for various in-house business publications and publishing houses.
