Publications & Editorial Training


Butler’s MFA Creative Writing program is host to an online and print literary magazine, Booth. After only three years, Booth had already been praised as “one of the most exciting, fresh, and irreverent new journals out there” (Aja Gabel). Contributors include Kim Addonizio, Robin Black, Jonathan Lethem, and Michael Martone, and Booth has published interviews with writers such as Colson Whitehead, Joyce Carol Oates, Yusef Komunyakaa, Jonathan Franzen, George Saunders, Eula Biss, and Charles Simic. Booth offers opportunities for MFAs to help curate and edit content and to interview visiting writers for potential publication. We also offer MFA students a course in literary publishing, as well as multiple internship opportunities related to all publishing projects.
