Credits: 3

In this fast-paced practicum, students will assist in the production of Public Seminar, the online publication of The New School. Working closely with senior managing editor Evangeline Riddiford Graham and executive editor James Miller, students will learn how to edit and copyedit articles in a newsroom environment, collaborate with industry professionals, create posts in a content management system, and connect with readers via marketing and social media. In weekly in-person editorial meetings, students will have the opportunity to suggest new contributors and pitch topics for coverage. Over the semester, they will also be invited to pitch and write an essay or two for Public Seminar and conduct at least one author interview, receiving detailed feedback from the editors. The Public Seminar practicum is suitable for students committed to developing their writing and building a professional skill set. Students will receive copyediting and other editorial assignments on a weekly basis; the ability to work according to deadline is vital. Public Seminar’s website features daily posts on a variety of topics—from contemporary philosophers in conversation to student critics reviewing books, films, and music. It is a global public commons, home to open debate, new voices, and academic research adapted for a general audience. For more, see

The practicum is open to graduate and advanced undergraduate students currently enrolled in any program at The New School. Instructor permission is required.
