A lot goes into making a magazine. Take a look at this page. First, the story was written by a writer. Then it was revised by an editor. The page was laid out by a designer. Here’s a sneak peek at how TFK is made.

Welcome to TFK’s morning meeting. We get together every day. We share ideas about what to put in the magazine. We talk about what needs to be done. Our meetings keep us organized.

Photos are an important part of a magazine. They help tell the story. We look at many photos and choose the best ones. Then TFK’s art department creates a layout.

A writer reports the story. She does research. She asks questions. She talks to experts. Finally, she sits down to write. When the story is finished, she checks her work.

An editor reads the writer’s story. She makes changes. She works with the writer to make the story clear and interesting to readers.

Magazines have copy editors. They read all of the magazine’s copy, or text. They make sure there are no mistakes. This is Mike. He is one of TFK’s copy editors.
