In March, Joyce Chen, Executive Editor of literary journal The Seventh Wave, joined MMC’s Digital Journal of Ideas and Culture class to share lessons learned in launching The Seventh Wave and to advise students developing MMC’s first nonfiction digital journal. Chen discussed the business side of creating a new publication, from budget and logistics to tech platform decisions and content management strategies. The students had many questions about outreach, and Chen recommended various ways students could tap into the MMC community to build the digital journal.
In this course, students will produce the inaugural issue of TwoTwoOneNYC, which will focus on the theme of Revolution and how we embody revolutionary ideas. MMC students, faculty, staff, and alumni from across divisions and departments are encouraged to submit their written, multimedia, performance, or translation pieces. Submissions are accepted here until May 6, 2020.
