University literary journals allow students to create their own venue for learning, have a hands-on part of their development in real-world skills, and strive towards professional achievement. But producing an undergraduate literary magazine requires commitment, funding, and knowledge of the industry. This practical guide assists students and faculty in choosing a workable structure for setting up, and then successfully running, their own literary publication. Whether the journal is print or online, in-house or international, Creating an Undergraduate Literary Journal is a step-by-step handbook, walking the reader through the process of literary journal production. Chapters focus on: defining the journal; the financial logistics; editing the journal; distribution; and what could come next for a student writer-editor after graduation. The first book of its kind to offer instruction directly to those running university-based literary magazines, this book includes insights from former editors, advisers, students and features an extensive list of active student-run literary magazines key literary organizations for writers/editors who serve literary publications. From Audrey Colombe, faculty adviser on the award-winning Glass Mountain magazine from the University of Houston, this is a text for both newcomers and those more informed on the production process to help them navigate through a successful publishing experience.

The 15 essays in this book reveal the complexity of teaching writing, with some contributors calling into question the gap between classroom theory and classroom practice as seen through students' and tutors' perspectives. The book analyzes the cornerstone of theory and proposes a reexamination of some taken-for-granted composition practices. After an introduction ("The Theory behind the Centers" by Joan A. Mullin), essays in the book are: (1) "Writing Center Practice Often Counters Its Theory. So What?" (Eric H. Hobson); (2) "Collaborative Learning and Whole Language Theory" (Sallyanne H. Fitzgerald); (3) "The Creative Writing Workshop and the Writing Center" (Katherine H. Adams and John L. Adams); (4) "The Writing Center and Social Constructivist Theory" (Christina Murphy); (5)"Collaborative Learning Theory and Peer Tutoring Practice" (Alice M. Gillam); (6) "Writing Others, Writing Ourselves: Ethnography and the Writing Center" (Janice Witherspoon Neuleib and Maurice A. Scharton); (7) "Text Linguistics: External Entries into 'Our' Community" (Ray Wallace); (8) "Learning Disabilities and the Writing Center" (Julie Neff); (9) "Individualized Instruction in Writing Centers: Attending to Cross-Cultural Differences" (Muriel Harris); (10) "A Unique Learning Environment" (Pamela Farrell-Childers); (11) "Buberian Currents in the Collaborative Center" (Tom MacLennan); (12) "'The Use of Force': Medical Ethics and Center Practice" (Jay Jacoby); (13) "The Politics of Otherness: Negotiating Distance and Difference" (Phyllis Lassner); (14) "Literacy and the Technology of Writing: Examining Assumptions, Changing Practices" (Joan A.

The Composition Instructor's Survival Guide is written for the most overlooked segment of today's English departments: the more than forty thousand instructors who do the actual composition teaching, most of them for low pay, no benefits, no hope of tenure. It is the first book to speak for this largely silent group - to voice the anger composition instructors feel at their treatment, to articulate the reasons why composition courses and teachers deserve more respect, and, most important, to enumerate what composition instructors can do to make their jobs easier and more pleasurable.
