The Publishing Laboratory
Integral to the Department of Creative Writing, The Publishing Laboratory incorporates into the apprenticeship of creative writers an applied learning experience in the process by which literary manuscripts, including their own, are designed, shaped, and edited into books and published to a wide audience of readers. Courses leading to the BFA Certificate in Publishing give students the opportunity to study the history of the book, the art of editing, and book design. For students interested in pursuing a career in book or journal publishing or attending graduate school in a related field, the Lab offers a foundation in the book arts by intensive work in conceptualizing, designing, editing, publishing, and marketing literary titles under The Publishing Laboratory imprints.
