Although I have used this project every Third Quarter in my creative writing classes, I have adapted it on a smaller scale for my English 12 classes. With the latter, the students choose a literary period, an author or poet, or a theme and create a magazine.
For the English classes, the written selections should be 75% of an author(s) work(s) and 25% original students' work where they follow the criteria of the period, the author's style or show their understanding of the theme. I suggest that this be 8 or 12 pages instead of 16 pages. When used in the creative writing classes, the percentages for the written work should be 75% original and 25% other writers.
A class literary magazine is a terrific way for all of your students to showcase their writing.
