Three students from Edgewood High School joined Jamie Born, KEMPA SJW Assistant Director and instructor, for a Literary Magazine basic class.
Evelyn Stein, Cameron Craig and Zachary Palmer are on the Wayfarer staff at Edgewood High School.
Since a large part of Lit Mag involves design and style elements, Born showed the students various examples of spreads in magazines. Through these examples she was able to point out design elements that worked well and some that could use improvement. She also featured the cohesion that is necessary for a successful magazine.
This basic class was unique because Born was able personalize her teaching to the Wayfarer and Stein, Craig and Palmer. Though many spread examples were in color, Born also made sure to apply the same concepts to the Wayfarer, which is printed in grayscale.
The four spent time looking at an issue of the students' magazine, discussing layouts and making suggestions to improve the issue during the upcoming year.
