Regional Book in Magazine Format: Project for Journalism Schools.
Berthelot, Dolly
"Pioneer Spirit 76," an original bicentennial anthology from the Smoky Mountains region, was begun to gain in-depth editing and publishing experience and to test the feasibility of having journalism students produce a publication for a market beyond campus. This report traces the development of this book in magazine format, offers a basic plan for producing and distributing such a book within the quarter or semester system, and suggests the potential for learning laboratories within journalism departments. Created with limited funds and resources, and marketed to tourists and regional residents, the book contains articles and photographs in 84 pages. Participants were mainly University of Tennessee upperclass and graduate student volunteers. The results of the book project indicate that a regional or city book laboratory, within a university journalism department, could offer students realistic education and professional experience with academic guidance and evaluation.
