MISSOULA — This is Lori Messenger’s first year teaching creative writing at Sentinel High School and one of her main projects has been to give the school’s literary magazine ‘The Kopee’ a new look.
Messenger is this week’s KPAX-TV and Republic Services One Class at a Time grant winner, and she will use the $250 award to do just that.
Messenger’s creative writing students will team up with students who excel in visual and graphic arts to make the magazine more appealing.
The Kopee is the oldest school literary magazine in the district, and Messenger says her class is excited about the new image they’re creating.
“I’ve been asking students at Sentinel -- because I just got there this year -- what they know about their literary magazine, The Kopee, Messenger said.
“And a lot of them haven’t heard of it and so we just want to make it a magazine that more students know about and are excited to be part of,” Messenger added.
