Rhian Ellis

This special class offering is available to students who select the "staff" option for their afternoon track. It is offered three days a week.

This course will examine the basic operations and principles of magazine publishing, with a focus on literary journals. Student editors will examine several literary journals and learn what happens behind the scenes of a magazine as they make decisions about how to order, shape, and curate work in several genres. By the end of the course, student editors will create, edit, and produce an online literary magazine, showcasing it at the final reading and reception on the last day of the Institute.

Rhian Ellis is an editor at Okey-Panky magazine and at Cayuga Lake Books. She is also a writer.
