Principles of EditingLimited Enrollment Course
Section 1: Kim Cooper -- M, W 6-8:30 pm
This course is designed to familiarize students with the roles of magazine and book editors. By using an editor's actual working materials-queries, manuscripts, contracts-we consider editors' myriad responsibilities to author, publisher, and reader. Students learn the production process, from acquisitions to line editing and copyediting, design, marketing, and publicity. Guest speakers-literary agents, authors, designers-visit the class to share their various areas of expertise.
