Eleven and a Half is the student-run literary magazine at Eugene Lang College. The magazine is published once a year during the spring semester and includes work written and visual work from students from all divisions of The New School, as well as many notable authors. Students enroll in a class devoted to producing the journal in the fall and begin soliciting and editing submissions during that semester. Publication is celebrated with a reading at the college given by contributors and staff and the magazine is then circulated for free in the courtyard and at various events. The admissions office receives a generous portion so that prospective and incoming students can be made aware of the vitality of Lang’s literary community. This course provides students with opportunities to be develop skills in every phase of serial publication—crafting editorial goals, soliciting and evaluating materials, editing texts, collaborating with other staff members, communicating with contributors, procuring art, designing pages, and marketing the final product. The magazine also has presence across various social media platforms, which are employed for publishing creative work and for publicizing the current issue. Editors from established magazines—The Paris Review, Bookforum, Tin House—visit the class to answer questions and offer opinions about the overall process. In consequence, the staff of Eleven and a Half gain considerable real-world knowledge and experience about publishing. After the first week of the semester, permission of the instructor will be required in order to register for this course.
