Instructor Course Descriptions - Beth Mead

The Literary Journal [Fiction and/or Poetry and/or Essay]
Students enrolled in this journal editing class will read submissions to The Lindenwood Review, discuss them with the class, and vote on them for publication; students will be listed as editorial assistants in TLR. Additional coursework includes describing and analyzing your personal aesthetic as a reader and writer, as well as researching and presenting a literary journal to the class (students enrolled in more than one section will research a different journal for each class). In addition, the publication process will be discussed, and students will be required to submit their own original work to an approved publication by the end of the quarter. To become familiar with our journal, visit the website for TLR at and click on Current Issue to read excerpts. 

Prose Collection: Tobias Wolff / David Sedaris / Margaret Atwood (online)
Each Prose Collection class will focus on one collection from a single author (short story collection or personal essay collection). We will discuss and analyze each piece from a writer’s perspective, as well as addressing cohesiveness and the ordering of pieces in a collection. Students will also consider how their observations and insights can be applied to their own writing and a future collection. The Prose Collection is a literature/craft class; there is no workshop component. Students may take up to three Prose Collection classes as long as each class has a different author focus.
