About the Course:

This class provides a hands-on project for students interested in all aspects of literary publishing.  The Berkeley Fiction Review publishes short stories of various styles in an annual magazine, from the mainstream to the experimental, but we do not publish poetry or non-fiction.  We are working towards attaining a national reputation as a leader in publishing the best contemporary short fiction.  We will discuss the processes of story and art selection, layout, copyediting, fundraising and marketing, as well as the more general topics of the small press.  Students in the class will play an integral part in the production of the magazine and should come out of the class with an in-depth knowledge of the editorial selection process and a broader appreciation of small-press publishing.

How to Enroll:

This DeCal will have a maximum of 35 students. Please email me at if you would like to take this course; I will compile an enrollment list first come first serve from these emails. Then, you will need to show up on the first day of class to receive the CCN. If there are more than 35 students interested I will take a waitlist for two weeks after the first class session. YOU MUST SHOW UP FOR THE FIRST THREE CLASSES OR YOU WILL BE DROPPED FROM THE COURSE. Missing more than two classes (and not making them up) will result in a fail for the course. Please send any additional enrollment questions to me at
