The Los Angeles Review of Books / USC Publishing Workshop is an intensive, multidisciplinary summer program that prepares its fellows for the present and future of publishing and related fields. While we offer a standard curriculum to each year’s cohort, we also customize that curriculum according to the stated interests and background of the admitted fellows. We are therefore interested in knowing what areas most interest you and why and what goals you hope to accomplish by attending this workshop.
