The Literary Journal—Beth Mead
- It is highly recommended that all MFA students enroll in at least one Literary Journal class during the program. This class gives students the chance to be on the other side of the submission process and is very useful as a writer--and it also allows students to list an Editorial Assistant credit on their CV/resume.
- Journal editing emphasis options for summer: Fiction, Poetry, or Prose Poetry
- Students in literary journal classes read, discuss, and vote on submissions to The Lindenwood Review. This class includes other types of assignments but does not include a creative writing component. See course description for full details.
