Welcome to CRW 324: Issues of Diversity in Publishing. I’m thrilled that you’ve decided to take this course, a topic I believe is one of the most important things we should be discussing as writers, thinkers, and members of the publishing community. While exploring the issues facing publishing–and the wider world–in terms of race, class, gender, orientation, disability, and so much more won’t always be straightforward or easy, my hope is that this course broadens your understanding of the complexity of these issues, gives you new things to think about, and challenges the ways you read and write. I’m so looking forward to your thoughts, opinions, and reactions this semester!
Here is your syllabus, which we’ll of course go over in class. But it’ll be here if you need to reference it at any point in the semester.
