Description:

This class introduces students to techniques of creative writing,
editing, design, presentation, and production, culminating in the
quarterly publication of the English Department Literary and Arts
magazine, The Catalyst. This class is a collaborative faculty-student
seminar group featuring creative writing and design workshops, and
facilitating the production of a dossier of creative work in both the
literary and visual arts. Our classes follow a model of instruction –
practice – reflection. Additionally, students will develop skills in
editing, writing, creating, and designing at the level required for

the editorial team for the following academic year. Contact Professor
