Literary Magazine Club

The Literary Magazine Club has 10 fifth grade student editors who work with two faculty sponsors, Sandy Mercer and Christen Pedigo to create a literary magazine, Tiger Tales.  Throughout the year the club members gain knowledge of the publishing process.  They invite local authors, editors, and publishers to speak to the club.  The student editors develop skills in editing as they edit submissions.  The student editors also hone their time management skills as they work to create the magazine production timeline and stick to deadlines.  Student editors also learn to work together to accept and edit submissions and work collaboratively on the many decisions that must be made in the process of publishing a magazine.  The final product is a literary magazine that the student editors publish and provide a copy to each student in our school.  To thank the students whose work is published, the student editors host an authors' party at the end of the year to celebrate the publication of the magazine.

This club runs throughout the year, beginning in September. For more information contact one of the club coordinators:
