Creative writing profs! Check out CLMP's lit mag adoption program

TIR staff

The Council of Literary Magazines and Presses (CLMP) has launched the Lit Mag Adoption Program for Creative Writing Students, which allows undergraduate and graduate creative writing professors to include literary magazines in their courses.

Students receive discounted, 1-year subscriptions for selected literary magazines—such as (*cough cough*) the Iowa Review—and 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 publisher/editor through a virtual (or in-person where local) "one-on-one" chat session.

The program aims to promote a generation of new writers who are also active readers and productive members of the larger literary community.
