This course is a writing intensive, works-in-progress seminar for doctoral students interested in preparing an article for publication. It will explore the everyday challenges of writing and introduce students to the professional practices and protocols of journal publication. During the term, you will read and comment on the work of your peers, learn how to interpret and generate feedback in the form of "reader's reports," revise and present your own essay, and explore potential publication venues. The final act of the course will entail submitting your essay for publication in the journal of your choice. 3 graduate units.
