As they prepared to publish the 2017 edition of Literary Travelers, R.C. Murphy Junior High School’s literary magazine club members had an opportunity to meet with published artist Michael Grever and learn about new design techniques and layout trends.

Mr. Grever, who is the brother of club advisor Julie Grever, is a graphic designer for a textbook company and has been published in magazines and newspapers both in the United States and abroad. During the workshop, he spoke with the students about what makes a visually appealing layout, showed them how he designs the textbooks, and provided some pointers on the work they are doing with this year’s literary magazine.
