Magazine production is deadline heavy, with tight turnarounds and last-minute changes. To stay on schedule, many contributors and editors need to work in sync, like the parts of a well-oiled machine. In this six-hour seminar, Jennifer Landels, managing editor of Pulp Literature magazine, will walk us through the typical workflow of a literary magazine, from submissions to final proofing.

We’ll begin with an overview of the production workflow and then examine each of the editorial stages in terms of roles, responsibilities, and timelines, with an emphasis on the use of cloud-based technology to facilitate communication and streamline workflow. At each stage, participants will get hands-on experience editing, managing, and proofing using online applications for collaborative editing.

Participants should be comfortable working on a computer, but no specific technical experience is required.

Visit the registration page for further details.

Jennifer Landels is a founding editor of Pulp Literature Press. As managing editor, she has a finger in all the production line pots that need stirring. Prior to starting the press, she worked as a freelance editor, writer, and designer.
