Hurry before it is too late to submit to the Literary Magazine!
That’s right….We’re bringing back the literary magazine! However, when I say that, most people follow up with the question, “What is a literary magazine? And what can I submit?”
Almost every school has a literary magazine, which is a platform for students to submit any literature, artwork, or photography they desire to share. It can be something that has been written in the past, but if it is more recent, it is even better. It is not necessary to write something new for this magazine, because the point of it is to showcase the literary and artistic genius we have on campus, as evidenced by students’ work throughout the year. Whether it was submitted to English class or History, the topic of the submission can be just about anything, as long as it is school appropriate and is a maximum of one page. This magazine will be called Ani Medaber, which in Hebrew translates to “I speak”. This magazine is a way for students to speak their minds through their writing and/or artwork, and show the Hillel community just how talented we are (and students can do so anonymously if they want).
In light of the recent tragedy at Stoneman Douglas High School, the magazine will be dedicated to this school to honor the students who were lost in this tragedy. If students desire to write anything specifically about the shooting, it will be welcomed as long as, again, it is school appropriate.
Many students have asked me what the difference is between this magazine and the Roar Post. The Roar Post is a student run school newspaper where students write articles, whereas this magazine is an outlet for creative expression, whether it be through writing, photography, or artwork.
Other than being able to show everyone how great your writing/art is, a major benefit to submitting to the magazine is that you can put on your college resume that you were published in the school literary magazine.
If anyone has any questions regarding the magazine, feel free to talk to me or Raquel Dimitri, as well as Mrs. Baltodano or Mr. Carpentieri, or feel free to contact us by email.
