Literary Magazine Practicum

Much of the editorial work on Summit Avenue Review is done by students taking ENGL 421 and 422, Literary Magazine Practicum, a fall/spring sequence of two-credit courses, available to students working on the magazine. Participants in this sequence study the history and character of literary magazines from 1912 to the present, learn desktop publishing (InDesign CC) and Web design, and apply their knowledge to producing the university’s literary and visual arts magazine. The two courses are integrated and mutually dependent on each other; ENGL 421 is an absolute prerequisite for ENGL 422. 

Students interested in the Practicum or with other questions about the magazine should contact Matt Batt at 962-5605 or e-mail him at
