WRIT 3450 - Runestone: Introduction to Literary Publishing


Goals: In this dynamic, hands-on class, students are immersed in the operations of putting together and promoting an issue of a national undergraduate literary magazine.

Content: Students read, analyze, discuss, and select submissions for the next issue of Runestone, Hamline’s award-winning online national undergraduate literary magazine. In addition, they study the history of the mission-driven independent literary journal and its cultural role of discovering new voices; study journals publishing today and craft essays that illuminate the contemporary conversation about their genre; complete short writing exercises; and revise and prepare one manuscript to send to another national undergraduate review. They also explore different ways of promoting the magazine: tweeting, blogging, posting.
