MTLY Communications will host a Magazine Publishing Workshop during Spring Break 2013 at the University of Memphis for middle school and high school students across the Mid-South.

Known for publishing an award-winning magazine for men and women ages 18-34, MTLY Communications will launch a publication exclusively for tweens and teens later this year. In the meantime, Spring Break will prove to be an incredible experience for students interested in learning skills required in the magazine industry. In addition, participants will develop the content for the Premiere Issue of the new tween/teen magazine. During the week long workshop, participants will hear from Magazine Publishers, Editors, Writers, Graphic Designers, and Photographers. Students will also get a glimpse of college life with a full campus tour of the University of Memphis.

Participation for the entire week is $125.00 and includes instructional material, breakfast, lunch and closing ceremony activities. Students will follow a schedule from 9:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m. beginning Monday, March 11, 2013 through Friday, March 15, 2013. Students will report to the lobby of the University of Memphis Meeman Journalism Building located at 3711 Veterans Avenue. Students will be required to check in and sign out upon arrival and dismissal each day.

Students ages 12 - 18 are eligible to participate in the workshop but must register to be considered. 25 students will be selected based on academic achievement, experience, community service, and areas of interest in the magazine industry. However, those who are naturally drawn to the magazine industry or those who are curious about launching a publication are also urged to register.

The registration packet can be downloaded at All registration forms are due no later than February 14, 2013. Payment plans are available by request (made no later than February 8, 2013) by emailing Students will be notified of selection by February 22, 2013 and all fees must be paid by March 4, 2013.
