ENG4800 Capstone Course (Writing for Publication) 3 credits 5 weeks

This course explores the practice of writing for publication in various genres and technologies. The intent is to help graduating students increase the number of opportunities they will have to publish academic and workplace manuscripts that acknowledge the distinctive requirements and expectations of each discourse community. Students will become familiar with academic journals in their field of study, prepare a developing manuscript for future publication, and provide peer reviews of colleagues’ articles. In addition, students will explore the various genres and shifting technologies employed in the area of workplace and ministry communication that use traditional forms (newspaper, periodicals, radio/TV) as well as emerging forms (corporate blogs and social media, mobile, and online methods) to reach an increasingly more sophisticated and demanding reader.

Prerequisite:
