Lit Mag Adoption Program for Creative Writing Students
Most poetry, short fiction, and creative non-fiction by emerging writers first finds its way into print through literary magazines, yet few student writers actively engage with the spectrum of magazines published today. By integrating literary magazines into course curricula and providing opportunities for one-on-one interaction between literary magazine publishers and creative writing students (a key component of the program), the Lit Mag Adoption Program promotes a generation of new writers that are also active readers and productive members of the larger literary community.
How it Works
The Lit Mag Adoption Program for Creative Writing Students allows undergraduate and graduate creative writing professors to include literary magazines in their courses. Students receive discounted, 1-year subscriptions for selected literary magazines (professors receive a free "desk-copy" subscription). Each participating class will receive at least two issues of the magazine during the semester. In addition, classes will have direct interaction with the magazine publisher/editor through a virtual (or in-person where local) "One-on-One" chat session.
Professors: If you are outside the continental US, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. If you are located within the US, Register your class now. Once you have submitted the online registration, your desk copy order will be processed and you will receive unique login information to provide to your students. Students will then order their discounted subscriptions through this website.
Students: Order your course subscription now. Note that you will need the unique login information provided by your professor.
