The Foxfire Magazine
The legacy of the first Foxfire class continues today through the creation of the Foxfire Magazine. With over 600 subscribers, this magazine continues to impact communities near and far. Cultural journalism and participant observation studies conducted throughout the summer provide students with material to compile the magazine. In addition to this publication, students often have leftover material which they can use to create other forms of digital and physical media, such as videos, radio broadcasts, art, and podcasts.
