Finalizing Manuscripts

In this highly individualized and small-group course, students finish manuscripts by fine-tuning them in relationship to the norms of a genre and various standards of submission and to the demands of the specific markets and outlets where they’re submitted.  The course changes in accordance to the specific needs of the students.

Finalizing Manuscripts provides an understanding of the specific forms demanded by certain markets for specific pieces of writing and how to finalize and submit the manuscript to these markets.

Each week, a student may meet with his or her small group and have one-on-one time with the professor. Coursework may include helping classmates to finalize and prepare projects for submission.
