--For electronic submissions, you must attach a MSWord, .doc file. My computer does NOT support .docx, .rtf, .zip, or .wps files. I will NOT be able to open such files.
--As you work on this project, save backups, on two separate data sticks and your YCP H drive. Tip: after each session, email a copy of the literary-journal-in-progress to yourself (to another email address). At the very least, print out a hard copy; that way, the worst that can happen (should you lose your electronic copy) is that you'll need to retype your journal.
--I'm telling you this now because I absolutely do not accept a computer crash/problem as a valid excuse for a late journal. It seems that every semester, I hear at least one sad song about a journal slipping into cyber oblivion. If you follow a few easy precautions, you will not lose your work.
2. The first page of your attached MSWord document should be a cover sheet, with the following format (centered on the page):
LIT160 Introduction to Literature
Literary Journal #
3. Paginate your document (Learn how to use MS Word's automatic page numbering and running header features).
4. Use a standard 12-point Times New Roman font.
5. Double space your document.
6. At the beginning, DATE each journal entry and give the TITLE and AUTHOR of each selection, thus avoiding confusion for both of us. Also note the NUMBER of the idea that you have incorporated (Section III.D).
7. For each submission, your responses must correspond to the readings in the specified category/categories (e.g., for Submission #1, you will respond to the readings in the categories "Growing Up and Growing Older," "The American Dream," and "Women and Men"–see Sections III.E-F for specific readings).
8. If your document is not submitted properly, it will be returned with instructions to resubmit properly.
9. Print copies must be typed, double spaced, properly paginated, contain a running header (your last name), and stapled (no paper clips, please). No ringed notebooks.
