Creative Writing

English 155:
How to Get Your Creative Writing Published

This is an advanced creative writing class (Engl 236 is a suggested prerequisite but not required) in which students will review current literary journals and contests with the aim of getting their writing published. Note that this class is advanced from English 236 and will concentrate on polishing/revising specific works for publication; the class will focus on craft: critiquing in a close workshop environment (5-15 students total) to hone and improve selected works and effectively target them for journals that champion the particular styles/aesthetics of individual writers. The instructor will draw upon his knowledge of the literary publishing industry to help guide writers to appropriate journals, contests, etc.

Jason Graham was a Henry Hoyns Fellow at the University of Virginia where he earned an MFA in Poetry Writing. He is the recipient of the Leslie Hunt Memorial Award, has edited acclaimed literary publications such as Meridian, Jeopardy Magazine and Fluid, and has published work in peer-reviewed literary journals such Prairie Schooner. He currently serves as the Poetry Editor for Flying Trout Press.
