YELLOW SPRINGS, Ohio – July 21, 2010 – The Antioch Review was selected by the Council for Literary Magazines and Presses to participate in the new Lit Mag Adoption Program for Creative Writing Courses.
“It is an exciting opportunity for the Antioch Review and other magazines to reach a young audience,” said Robert S. Fogarty, editor of The Antioch Review.
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 publishers and/or editors through a virtual (or in-person where local) chat session. During this meeting, the editor may discuss the history of the magazine, the current literary landscape, the curatorial process, etc., allowing students to better understand the publishing community in which they’re most likely to be published.
The ultimate goal of the program is to expose students to the variety of magazines out there and promote an active, engaged reading culture among young writers.
Visit the CLMP Lit Mag Adoption Program website to review the online catalogue and resources. You can order magazines now for Fall 2010 course adoptions. After you adopt a magazine, you will receive log-in information for your students to order their discounted subscriptions through the CLMP website.
