Self-Published Student Writing and Art

The cost of an HP color printer and a USB cable for this proposal is $622, including shipping and <a target="new" href="http://www.donorschoose.org/html/fulfillment.htm" onclick="g_openWindow('http://www.donorschoose.org/html/fulfillment.htm', 300, 800, 'fulfillwindow');return false;">fulfillment</a>.

I teach English at a rural high school of 1200. As chair of the department, I want to encourage our staff and students to celebrate their talents publicly. Our high school has created and published an annual literary magazine of student work for the past 15 years. The magazine, Writers' Strike, is composed entirely of student-written poems, short stories, essays, and art work. The work of collecting, editing, compiling, and printing is up to an English deptartment teacher and volunteer students who are interested in the project. This year about 10 students participated in the editing/publishing process and 50 students had work published in the magazine. In the past, the magazine has been funded by fees collected by the Creative Writing class and the price charged to purchase the magazine (this year we charged $7) with copies outsourced to local printing services. This past year, we included color-copy artwork for the first time and the additional expense was difficult, but the result was a very positive addition to the magazine. We would like to purchase a laser jet color printer dedicated to the magazine and to other English department classroom projects. The printer would be accessible to all the English faculty, but would primarily be used to publish the school's literary magazine. This would allow all the publishing to be done in-house and give students hands-on experience in the printing, collating, and final product. The printer would also allow us to reduce the price charged for the magazine, thus, putting the student work into more students' hands.
