ENGW 203 - Writing: Book Editing and Design I


4 credit(s)
Professional Writing and Editing is a writing intensive class in which students will write analytical, expository, and creative essays with the goal of developing a portfolio of professional writing, including a research paper. The class will also include practical training in editing techniques, including developmental editing, copyediting, and proofreading. Students will develop critical thinking skills, sharpen and deepen their creative work, and understand the role editing plays in developing concise, effective prose. Because students will be working with more advanced peers enrolled in ENGW 304 , they will, with the assistance of student mentors, collaborate with student writers to organize their critical and creative work into a larger collection of student writing (edited by ENGW 304  students and made available for purchase). Students enrolled in ENGW 203 will actively be working with the more advanced publishing and editing minors (enrolled under ENGW 304 ) to gain a more sophisticated understanding of how to design a collection of writing.

Core Requirement(s): Counts toward core requirement: Writing. Students may take ENGW 201 or ENGW 202 or ENGW 203 to satisfy the core but may only earn for one of these courses. Students may receive for both ENGW 203 and ENGW 304.Prerequisite(s): Sophomore standing or above (30 or more completed credits).
