Plan ahead- sign up for English 137 and help make the Spring 2020 issue of Bravura!

Calling all editors, comic artists, graphic designers (lovers of InDesign), painters, sculptors, fashion designers, art and literature enthusiasts, marketers, social media gurus, photographers, poets, short story-ists, creative non-fiction writers, and most of all, people who like to make things! We can’t wait to work with you Spring 2020 on the next issue of Bravura, Palomar’s literary journal. ENG 137 (TTh 2:45-4:50) is a four-unit transferrable course that gives you hands-on experience in publishing. We don’t exaggerate when we say: it will be fun. Be a part of something special at Palomar College!

In ENG 137 we all share a common goal: the successful publication and promotion of a new edition of Bravura. The class also offers a lot of diversity in terms of how students can contribute to the production of Bravura, and everyone will take on a variety of roles over the course of the semester. It is a collaboration among the students and the faculty where each person contributes based on their own academic interests and areas of expertise; however, this class will also challenge students to develop new skills related to the publication and promotion of the journal, that are clearly transferable into a variety of educational and employment settings. It also looks great on a resume or CV!

More than just ENG majors!
