WVW HS Students: Writing, Photography, and Artwork Needed!

Interim Literary Arts Magazine is currently accepting high school student submissions of all varieties of school-appropriate original writing, artwork, and photography. Students can submit electronically by e-mailing works to interim@wvwsd.org, or they can submit print copies with the submission form attached in room 403. Submission forms can be found HERE.

 

What is Interim?

Interim Literary Arts Magazine is a club whose goal is to promote and publish creative works of Wyoming Valley West High School students.  The club meets weekly after school to discuss and prepare fundraising, advertising, submissions, selections, publications, and any other business.  Students interested in joining the club can contribute in various ways including selecting pieces, fundraising, advertising, selling, creating artwork and effects, and/or working with graphic design and layout.  We will gladly work with underclassmen that do not have experience, and we will train them to do what we do.

Interim collects original artwork, photography, and writing from the high school student body.  Staff members then judge the works anonymously and choose the best pieces of the year to publish into a collective magazine that displays the creative talent of our students. Interim debuts each year at the Arti Gras Festival in May. Magazines are available for purchase at $5 each.
