Want to start or reinvent a literary magazine at your two-year school? Advisers discuss and demonstrate strategies for naming and renaming the magazine, involving all of the stakeholders, garnering submissions, submission management, budget concerns, design, printer selection, online presence, and student practicums. Panelists also discuss the various views on the role of the adviser. While the panel focuses on two-year school programs, this event is also applicable to university publications.
