The Context

Student publications like literary magazines provide additional learning opportunities for students to practice and engage in their writing craft as an extracurricular activity. Students take the rigorous writing instructions from the classroom curriculum, practice, and invest their effort and time into sharpening their writing skills and intermixing the creative process with the writing process. There is a sense of ownership and pride in the writing process because when they submit to magazines or bulletin boards, they are more conscious of the fact that people will read their work. Furthermore, the students involved in the publication process are also exploring and practicing for Institution and the workforce. Student publications help students develop important life skills through collaborating on ideas, working in teams, setting objectives and deadlines, solving problems, keeping records, using technology, and other exercises. The publication experience also exposes students to and develops their talents in various academic and professional sectors, such as editing, publishing, writing, teaching, graphic design, etc. Student publications give writers and other production team members the chance to hone skills they have learned in the classroom while also giving them a creative outlet.

Students are additionally encouraged to publish their writing outside of the Institution's creative arts publication on digital publication sites by creating an approved list of reputable online publication alternatives such as blogs.

The Practice

The goals of the institution are indeed the holistic development of the students. In order to achieve this, the institution is doing everything possible to ensure the overall growth and progress of students. Whether it be in the academic, sporting, artistic, or literary spheres, the Institution places the highest focus and concern on the development of its students.

The institution provides students with ample possibilities to contribute literary works to institutional publications such as bulletin boards, manuscripts, blogs, and the yearly magazine. Students are motivated by the Course Teachers, Class Advisors, Directors of the Students’ Council, and the Principal to involve themselves in literary activities like writing essays, articles, poems, short stories, reports, drawings, and research articles. The literary works of the students are published in the Institutional publication after editing and reviewing by the staff in charge. Training sessions, guest lectures, workshops, etc. are organized wherein experts impart training to the budding student writers.

Evidence of Success

Numerous student works that have appeared on subject bulletin boards, institutional publication boards, annual magazines, and blogs testify to the involvement of students in the writing, editing, designing, and publishing processes. Students can be writers in every sense of the word, and it is important to use student publications as a way of assisting student authors in realizing this for themselves, as well as their place on the publishing spectrum and the wide range of readers they can reach through Institution, community, and online venues. Student publications undoubtedly aid writers and editors, who are also students in their writing and creative processes. This can only strengthen the already rigorous academic writing instruction in a curriculum and better prepare students for life and work after their education. Student publications fill the gap between creative and academic writing in the curriculum, and the potential readership is essentially endless given the variety of sharing spaces available for them (bulletin boards, institution libraries, home coffee tables, business waiting rooms, as well as the myriad electronic means). Best of all, young writers who are engaged, self-assured, and prepared to write for actual audiences outside of the classroom are generated by student-produced creative arts publications.
