AWP Panel Presentation: "The Undergrad and the Lit Journal"

  • Washington Convention Center

Abstract: Humanities-based academic disciplines are increasingly being asked to provide practical experience for their majors. One answer that has gained popularity in recent years is the use of print and online literary journals to provide real-world, hands-on experience. Panelists will discuss the ways they have incorporated editing, design, aesthetics, and publications into their classrooms, the benefits to students and the schools, and the economic and pedagogical challenges they have faced (with Thom Caraway, Simone Muench, Jeff Dodd, and Rachel Cruea)
