This course introduces students to the fundamentals of magazine writing, production, and editing. Students learn the methods, techniques, and procedures of magazine publication using software (e.g., InDesign) to layout magazine content by participating in the pre- and post-production of La Cima, the college magazine. Students learn how to develop story ideas and content, write stories, take photographs, prepare for publication, and design pages. Class lectures include subjects like magazine preparation, production, organization, structure, and operation. At the conclusion of the course, students will have participated in the total development and production of a magazine(s) that will be published online and printed, thereby mastering the use of design layout, illustration, and ensuring page layouts are well-balanced.
