Hello, I'm wondering if anyone can let me know their opinion about the difference between the connotations for Civic versus Civil? I'm creating a tagline that describes a literary journal and I've wrestling between: A Civic Journal of Literature & Dialogue -versus- A Civil Journal of Literature & Dialogue The use of one of these two words is intended to refer to a citizen. For me, I think that Civil makes the Journal sound like it's behaving well. Yet I think that Civic Journal seems to mean "having to do with the city" as in public works. Can anyone offer me any insight to this? Am I over-thinking this? Should the tagline simply be "A Public Journal of Literature & Dialogue." The idea is that this Lit Journal will be sort of a high-hat, borderline snobbish publication...for writer's writers. Thank you for very much for your help, and please let me know if I can provide any other information.
