Publishing Arts 

Publishing Arts is an integral and unique part of the way we think about writing. Students work as writers, editors, designers, book makers and publishers.

We offer hands-on classes in book arts, type and design, electronic publishing, book design, and creating a journal.

Students create their own books, websites, e-books and blogs.

Editors, agents and publishers visit our program and participate on panels in our M.F.A. Reading Series.

Welter , a national literary journal, is edited and produced by students in the M.F.A. program.

Skelter , a UB literary journal.

Passager , a national literary journal for writers over 50.

In their final year, students complete a thesis, which they write, edit, design and publish as a book. Examples of books students have created are below.
