CRWR 40500 - Publication Workship


(3) This seminar provides the student with know-how, guidance, confidence, and camaraderie to navigate the publication process. Looking at the rapidly changing publication and distribution systems of the 21st century, students conduct their own online research, present their findings to their peers, and reveal publication and placement options. They workshop query letters and analyze the first pages they each plan to send to interested agents. They discuss the advice of talented successful authors and analyze the journeys of the yet-to-be published.  Students complete the course with a greater understanding of self-promotion, writing for specific audiences in high stakes scenarios, and using rejection for self-improvement—all of which are crucial to becoming a published author. Offered every other year in Fall. Prerequisite: Junior status required.
