The Eclectic is a collection of works by Bob Jones students in Madison, Alabama and is published yearly. The Eclectic magazine is put together by the Multimedia Publications class and collects work from the entire student body of 1,600 students, but is heavily compiled of works from Creative Writing, Art, and Photography club.

The Eclectic consists of seven sections: prose, poetry, creative nonfiction, comics, photography, art, and the feature section. The feature section revolves around a theme, this year’s being “Lost in Translation”. Whether it be through words, generations, species, the 2016 staff chose this theme as a mean to communicate intricate and diverse stories and art. Donald Rizzardi, a Bob Jones student, designed the cover and section dividers.

bjhstheeclectic.com serves as a companion to the literary magazine and as a hub for various multimedia projects, staff listings, award winnings, and a downloadable version of The Eclectic. The students featured in magazine will receive a copy and if one wishes to purchase one, they are available for $15 in C126.
