COM 125 - Publishing Practicum: Editorial Process


3 Credit Hours

Publishing Practicum: Editorial Process is a project-based course designed to take students through the editorial process involved in preparing a publication. As students work as a team to produce RACC’s annual journal, Legacy, they gain practical experience in soliciting submissions and evaluating work for publication as well as in publicizing and promoting the journal. Through analysis of contemporary literary magazines for content, audience and style, students engage with theoretical aspects of literary publishing as well and create their own editorial philosophy. Students also contribute to a collaborative reflective log to build a positive interdependence that moves the group forward. The course thus gives students a unique opportunity to become managers of the semester-long project and learn through experience and reflective inquiry.

Prerequisite(s): COM 050 /COM 051  or ESL 050 , and COM 061  or ESL 060  with grades of “B” or better.

Semesters Offered: Fall
