English major Julia Harrison, C’20, created a new independent study course at the Sewanee Review.

Following internships with publishers, English major Julia Harrison, C’20, worked with Sewanee’s English department to create new undergraduate opportunities at the Sewanee Review. A remarkable resource to have on the Sewanee campus, the Review was founded in 1892 and is America’s oldest continuously published literary quarterly.  

This semester, Harrison, Elizabeth Chandler, C’20, and Jackson Harwell, C’22, have been meeting in the Review office several hours a week for an independent study course. They will have the chance to assist over a full production cycle of the journal, soliciting, reviewing, and copyediting submissions for publication. They are also reading widely and writing reflections to develop their own editorial styles.

Read the full story by Claire Smith, C’22, about the genesis of the course and what the students are working on, in the Sewanee Purple.
