Everything You Wanted to Know About Publishing

I can’t recommend this from any personal experience, but if you’re interested in learning more about the publishing business, this program certainly seems worth further investigation. From the editors of Crazyhorse literary journal:

We wanted to let you know about an exciting opportunity for writers that Crazyhorse is undertaking again this summer with Tupelo Press. In June of 2008, the Second Annual Crazyhorse/Tupelo Press Publishing Institute will be held at The College of Charleston in Charleston, SC. The institute was founded in 2007 to meet the needs of writers by providing training in the theory and practice of literary publishing and editing in order to prepare them for successful careers as publishers and editors. This year's institute will run from June 3 - June 30.

The institute offers you the chance to work closely with Crazyhorse Editors Carol Ann Davis and Garrett Doherty and Tupelo Press Publisher and Editor-in-Chief Jeffrey Levine. The institute will combine an intensive, four-week course that chronicles the choosing of the winner in the annual Tupelo Press First Book Prize (judged collaboratively by Crazyhorse editors and Tupelo Press editors) with opportunities to intern at Crazyhorse.

This year's institute has both for-credit and a non-credit options to meet the needs of participants who are in graduate school as well as those professionals who no longer need to earn graduate credit. Apply online, and get more information here or by emailing Carol Ann Davis at davisca@cofc.edu.
