Section Information for Spring 2020
ENGH 619 is a hands-on laboratory course in which students take part in the day-to-day running of the online journal Poetry Daily, which as of January 1, 2019 will be published in partnership with the Department of English’s Creative Writing Program and George Mason University Libraries.
Central to the plan the new editors at Mason have developed is a broader editorial model, featuring a new sixteen-member editorial board of notable, engaged poets from diverse backgrounds and aesthetic orientations who will become the public face of Poetry Daily. Alongside Jennifer Atkinson, Sally Keith, Eric Pankey, and Susan Tichy, faculty of Mason’s MFA in Creative Writing poetry program, and Aaron Mccullough, director of George Mason University Press and Mason Publishing, Kaveh Akbar, Jennifer Chang, Heather Green, Yona Harvey, Layli Long Soldier, Amaud Jamaul Johnson, Ilya Kaminsky, Sandra Lim, J. Michael Martinez, Vivek Narayanan, and Brian Teare will make up the new editorial board.
While published at Mason, the journal will focus on maintaining the high level of editorial integrity it is known for. In addition, under its new editorial direction, the journal will search for more diverse voices and publications, and feature more translation and global poetry in English, a poetry news digest on twitter that will go out to the site’s over 150,000 followers, which the editors plan to increase, Open Educational Resource curricula based around new editorial features, and more.
