Third student magazine debuts

Published 10:35 am Wednesday, May 24, 2017

The Randolph- Henry High School (R-HHS) Literary Arts Club has announced its third publication of “The Writer’s Block.”

“This 32-page magazine contains poetry, short stories, photographs, drawings and paintings,” according to a school press release.

“We’ve worked hard all year long in order to create a successful and fun magazine,” Teacher and sponsor Laur Warren said in the release. “This is a book that the contributors will have all of their lives to look back on. Whether they made a submission or helped to collate the magazine, each student has a keepsake from their high school he or she can be proud of.”

With its glossy cover drawn and designed by Patty Garcia, its contents reveal the unique paths that their imaginations have taken them through art, according to the release. “Editor Emily DeCamp, along with club members, spent many hours organizing and editing the works that were sent in by students. DeCamp, a senior, has been in the literary arts club since she was a sophomore. Each year, four artists are selected for a prize. For the 2016-17 academic year, the following received a $25 check: Janniqa Mosley, short story, “Daddy;” Alena Latysheva, poem, “Love in Four Seasons;” James Bouie, drawing; and Josh Smith, photograph.

Also working alongside DeCamp on publishing and editing were Vice President Jacob Barker, Commissioner of Art Patty Garcia, Jabari Gunter, Nichole Henry, Trent Pettus, Cole Pillow, Emma Silver and Amber Sullivan.”

Students offered thanks to Claudia McMillan, who graciously assisted the R-HHS Literary Arts Club.

Magazines are currently on sale for $3.

They are available at the high school.
