This is my fourth year heading up the Literary Magazine at my school, and at this point it is a well oiled machine. I have complied this year's template, tips, how to's, and handouts into easy to read documents to help you and your lit mag staff.
I have set up an InDesign template that has layouts ready for a 5.5"x7.5" book style Literary Magazine. The templates includes layouts for short stories, long stories, poems, full page artwork, and single page artwork. I also have a tips document to go along with the template. It gives advice on how to collect and save artwork and writing in order to seamlessly compile everything into the InDesign document.
In addition, I have a step by step document on how to set up and save pages for your staff to follow as they create their lit mag. Once all the pages are saved, I also have a document on how to compile the individual InDesign pages into a book and package everything together to send to your printer. There is a short video showing where the templates are located, how to view them, and drag them into a blank page.
Coming soon: instructions, how to, and a video on how to build a literary magazine template from scratch.
