Course topics will vary but always will be focused on writing, rhetorical composition and analysis, or literacy skills. Topics possible include a variety of options such as journalistic writing, non-fiction, debate, argumentation, persuasion, digital writing, among others.

This course will prepare student writers to participate in the world of publication by developing their prose in various genres with an eye to sending their work to publishers for consideration. Additionally, students will learn about the mechanics of publication, the various forums and opportunities for publication, and the kinds of jobs available in the publishing industry, such as editing. The course will deal with academic publishing, as well as other more popular types of publishing industries. This course is not about the actual production process, but rather the front end of publishing. The plan for this course currently includes interaction with publishing houses in the area.
