Finally! A how-to resource for teachers who are in charge of running a school literary magazine or who want to start a school literary magazine program.
This is a full-length book (174 pages) written specifically for advisers of school literary magazines. You won't have to weed through information for other scholastic publications, such as newspaper or yearbook. This book recognizes that literary magazine production is different and that literary magazine advisers have issues and needs that aren't always adequately addressed by resources for other scholastic publications.
Everything in this book is geared to a teacher heading up a literary magazine or literature & art magazine at the middle school, high school, or even college level.
Twenty-two chapters, a special segment on "common problems," a glossary of publication terminology, and an appendix full of examples and worksheets to help with your program!
Topics covered include scheduling production, staffing, selecting and critiquing content, funding, design & layout, printing & distribution, and more. See the FREE PREVIEW for the full table-of-contents.
The author has been teaching creative writing and advising a high school literary magazine for over ten years. Her programs have earned Pacemaker nominations from the National Scholastic Press Association and Crown Awards from Columbia Scholastic Press Association. The American Scholastic Press Association has twice dubbed her magazines "Most Outstanding" in the Nation.
