English 133: Reed Magazine Page 1 of 6 Prof. Nick Taylor English 133: Reed Magazine San Jose State University, Spring 2008 Mondays 4:00-6:45 PM Location: DMH 354 Professor Nick Taylor Office: FOB 219 (Phone 408-924-4458) Office Hours: MW 10AM-11:45AM, and by appointment.

Course Description This course is ideally, but not necessarily, a two-semester sequence in which students produce this year's issue of Reed , the San Jose State literary magazine. Students will perform all editorial duties themselves, including reading submissions, designing the layout, promoting the issue, and distributing the finished product. We'll devote special attention this year to expanding Reed 's web presence. Previous experience editing a literary magazine (i.e., in high school or at another college) is not required. Reed Mission Statement Reed Magazine is one of the oldest student-run literary journals west of the Mississippi. We publish outstanding fiction, poetry, nonfiction, and art from across the country, as a service to the South Bay literary community. Student Learning Goals Understanding of the process required to produce a periodical publication. Ability to organize tasks around a deadline. Ability to read and evaluate submissions as editors. Face-to-face exchange of ideas with faculty and fellow students in a classroom, in office visits, and in shared activities on and off campus. Required Texts and Supplies You are required to read the most recent issue of Reed (Volume 60), if you have not done so already. I will provide copies of Reed . For the Journal Report assignment, you are required to purchase a current issue of a reputable printed literary journal. These are stocked at most bookstores in the magazines area. To get you started, a short list of journals is on the Reed website at http:// www.sjsu.edu/reed/links.htm, under "Literary Magazines." If you have a laptop, please bring it to every class. We will be tracking materials using Google Docs and Spreadsheets (an online word-processing and spreadsheet service). The layout and web teams will be able to do their work in class. Layout software will be provided. Course Requirements and Grading This course requires a mix of individual and group work. I will grade all assignments on effort and thoroughness, taking into account that group work rarely
