We Need You!

What does the LitMag staff do?
We try to get our classmates to submit their original writing – poetry, lyrics, essays, short stories, and anything else they might think of. We also look for art – photos, drawings, computer art, whatever! Once we have many submissions to choose from we start the selection process. All submissions are evaluated by at least three different editors, there is a discussion, then a vote. Not every submission makes it into the Totem. Then we proofread and edit, and proofread some more. Once all the pieces have been selected and edited we begin laying out the magazine on the computers. We use Adobe InDesign for layout and Photoshop (to crop and lighten up some of the images). We proofread again, finalize the publication and send it off to the printers. We print 200 copies for each edition and we have printed 1 to 3 editions in a year (depending on the number of student submissions and budgetary constraints).

Want to submit to the LitMag?
We can’t have a LitMag without you! Submit your literary or artistic work now for this year’s edition. You can email it to us – You can drop it off with Mrs. Harris – or you can stop in on a Thursday after school.
