Cw350 Performance and Publication 4 credits
In this course, students will be introduced to the concept of performance as it relates to notions of identity, professionalization, and culture. They will practice various methods of public presentation, including live and recorded readings. Students will also learn methods for approaching professional publication of their creative work. This will include both print and electronic sources, including magazines, journals, and publishing houses. Students will learn how to write query letters, and prepare materials for submission to literary agents and publishers, as well as to research the best sources for publishing their particular work. Students should plan to use work completed in previous creative writing courses, as this course will focus on the polishing of that work in preparation for publication. Prerequisite: 4 credits in a creative writing workshop course at the 200-level or above, or permission of Division Chair.
