Magazine Cover

Directions

Create a magazine cover that is about you. Choose one word that describes you for the title of the publication. The title must be pre-approved. Be sure to follow all of the requirements listed below. Be creative and make the finished product look as professional as possible. The goal is for someone to choose your magazine over others based only on what they see and read on the front cover.
