This course aims to develop students’ skills in editing and publishing in English. The course focuses on the method and praxis of editing and publishing, and intends to prepare students for work in publishing industries. The course broadens the discussion of how texts are selected for publication by participating in the process of blind reviewing of submissions to a journal. Students learn to develop and refine the criteria for the selection of texts, and participate in the revision process with experienced editors. The course also aims to provide knowledge of magazine production, including graphic design, and some promotion in the final stages, which is done in collaboration with external partners such as libraries and bookstores.
