Professional Development: Small Press Publishing

The course serves as an introduction to various facets of the small press, including its history and practical concerns around submissions and editing. This is an experiential class, in which students learn by doing. Through hands-on study, students learn what a small press is, as well as its role in forging community, promoting diversity and experimentation, and innovating publishing practices. Working individually and collaboratively, students curate, design, distribute, and market one issue of Bombay Gin, as well as hone their individual professional development by developing submissions and cover/query letters. Prerequisites: COR115, WRI210, WRI234, and 3 credits of 300-level work in Creative Writing and Literature. Cross-listed as WRI705.
