Literary Magazine Class (ENG 231)

ENG 231 Literary Magazine - 3 credits

Obscura is produced by RRCC students in the Literary Magazine course (ENG 231) offered each Spring. The class covers much of the publication process such as how to choose publishable material from a large pool of submissions, how to use InDesign to design and format a magazine, and how to market a magazine to the public. Students gain hands-on experience while working as a team to attract and select submissions, produce an attractive, well-edited magazine, and plan a release party where students can read their pieces at an open mic. A grade isn’t the only thing students take away from this class. They also walk away with a printed, physical example of their work to use in a portfolio or to show off to friends, family, and college representatives.

Students of all interests and disciplines are welcome to take the class, especially students with creative writing, art, or InDesign experience. The course always needs layout gurus, tech-savvy designers, editing wordsmiths, and publicity kings and queens. For more information contact your advisor.
