MAGAZINE

The Loyolite 2004

Editing the annual magazine of Loyola School

Role

To assist the Editor in planning stories, editing, proof-reading.

The big picture

Worked on the idea that the magazine should be a good record of school activities i.e. a person reading the magazine 10 years from now, should find it informative and interesting.

The small steps

  • Journalistic reports: Greater attention was given to reports of school activities. Encouraged students to write journalistic reports (e.g. with quotes), rather than experiential accounts.
  • Content planning: Identified topics like cricket academy. Introduced a photo-pullout, feedback form.
  • Proof-reading: Careful proof-reading by two persons minimised errors.
