Abstract Title

Brainchild: Literary Magazine as Showcase of Creative Work and Learning Experience

Abstract

As the literary and arts magazine based at the Kent State University Honors College which publishes the work of honors students at schools in the Mid-East Honors Association region, Brainchild strives to share the best art created by these students with our community and beyond. Our mission is also to provide our staff of interdisciplinary students with invaluable experience editing and designing a literary magazine. Our design team members review visual submissions and our editors review literary submissions, giving us the opportunity to learn from each other within our teams as we discuss each submission. We also consider how each piece fits our idea of what we want Brainchild to embody. Once we’ve selected the pieces we want to include, we collectively develop the layout of the magazine and decide how best to create a cohesive collection which also equally showcases each work. Copies of the publication are available free of charge around the Kent State campus, providing students the opportunity to engage with the work of their peers and fostering inspiration, pride and possibility throughout the Kent State community.

Brainchild publishes one annual issue of our magazine, but we engage with our readers and our community year-round through events such as poetry readings cohosted with other literary organizations at Kent State. Members of our teams also attend literary conferences across the country to learn from other artists and magazines and to share Brainchild with a wider audience.

Brainchild is the literary and arts magazine based at the Kent State University Honors College which publishes the work of honors students at schools in the Mid-East Honors Association region.
