Editing the Small Magazine.
Ferguson, Rowena
The purpose of this book is to provide a practical guide for persons who are responsible for the issuance of the small magazine. It deals with accepted methods and techniques used in getting out such periodicals, with standards and sources of content material, with various matters relating to physical appearance, and with executive and administrative questions. Part I deals with Technical Editorial Functions and Part II with Executive Editorial Functions. Chapter 1, The Editorial Process, points out that the small magazine editor must maintain a set of professional relationships that are somewhat different from those of the editor of a commerical magazine. Chapter 2, Editorial Planning, emphasizes that the first goal of planning is to assure that the pages of the magazine are filled with the right kind of content. Chapter 3, Procuring Manuscripts, describes the kinds of writers that may be useful to the small magazine and describes ways of obtaining their best work. Other chapters are entitled: Pictures and Their Uses, Processing the Manuscripts, Laying Out the Pages, Printing the Magazine, Basic Editorial Policy, Basic Design, and The Editor and His Readers.
