The School Literary Magazine.
Kinnick, B. Jo, Ed.
Ideas for stimulating student writing and for publishing a school magazine to provide that writing with an audience are presented in this book. Creative writing programs and literary magazines for both elementary and secondary grades are discussed; the role of the literary magazine in the English program is evaluated; and the value of a student publication as a teaching device is described. A college magazine ("The Galleon," published at McMurry College, Abilene, Texas) and a yearly anthology (the "Oklahoma High School Anthology") are examined in detail. The critical ability of high school students and the necessity for maintaining a magazine's literary quality through imagination and continual evaluation are concluding topics. Appended materials include an annotated bibliography on writing, the results of a survey of high school literary magazines, suggested criteria for evaluating literary magazines, and an analysis of typical problems in college-level manuscripts.
