The following is from http://www.magnumopusmagazine.com:
The Magnum Opus Magazine, a premier showcase of work from students around the world, is published as an online magazine by the Institute for Excellence in Writing and is based on ideas presented by James B. Webster, Ph.D.
In his text Blended Structure and Style in Composition, as well as in his lectures, Dr. Webster explained one of his most powerful motivational ideas—The Magnum Opus, which is Latin for “great work.” This was the title he gave to a book published by his class each year consisting of the finest student-written papers of the year. A favorite paper was chosen, edited, and rewritten one last time and then typed, organized, and bound into a real book, which was then donated to the school library.
The Institute for Excellence in Writing is determined to create a homeschool students’ literary journal entitled, Magnum Opus Magazine. We believe that the Magnum Opus Magazine will become the premier homeschool students’ literary journal, with something of interest for every member of the family. Moreover, it will serve as an opportunity for students to be published and have their work read by peers worldwide.
