ENGL 3712: Literary Magazine Production Lab II

4 Credits

ENGL 3712 is the second of a two-semester course. In this hands-on, experiential lab, we solicit, acquire, edit, copyedit, design, typeset, proofread, print, publicize and distribute the upcoming edition of The Tower, the magazine of undergraduate art and creative writing by University of Minnesota students. This is the semester in which we bring out the finished, printed magazine, and in which we host a launch party on campus. We'll continue to apply and expand the lessons from our exploration in ENGL 3711 of the theory and history of literary magazine production in any number of ways: we'll revise our mission and theme as we draft and revise ancillary copy for the issue itself and as we refresh the marketing copy for our social media, blog, and website; we'll hone our design and typesetting skills as we lay out the issue; we'll refine our aesthetic sensibilities as we collaborate on final selections, strengthening our willingness to revise our opinions as compromise for the greater good; we'll add to our firsthand valuable on-the-job skills of budgeting, scheduling, and vendor relations; and we will deepen our understanding of the publishing profession as it exists today, locally, and nationally. prereq: [3711, instr consent]
