The Crazyhorse/Tupelo Press Publishing Institute
College of Charleston
June 3–30, 2008
The College of Charleston and the literary journal Crazyhorse have partnered with Tupelo Press, an independent literary press, to form the Crazyhorse/Tupelo Press Publishing Institute. The institute offers:
• training in the theory and practice of literary publishing and editing.
• preparation for successful careers as publishers and editors.
• a supplement to the curricula of MFA and Ph.D. programs that focus primarily on craft.
The Crazyhorse/Tupelo Press Publishing Institute brings together two important literary institutions: an internationally distinguished, award-winning publisher and a literary journal with nearly 50 years of continuous publication. The institute is open to graduate students and emerging writers. The program of study is unique in combining the opportunity for a practical internship at Crazyhorse with important lessons on the first book through an intensive, four-week course chronicling the selection of a winner in the annual Tupelo Press First Book Prize.
