Morning after morning students hear things about Savrola on the announcements asking for poetry and photography, yet they’re not really sure what it is. Savrola is the literary arts magazine of our school. It includes writing pieces and artwork done by students. The class is seventh period and Mr. Del Castillo is the teacher.
Anyone can submit literary pieces to Savrola and the students will put the magazine together. They hope to send it to at least three national competitions to be judged and hopefully place high.
“This year’s magazine will probably be one of the best since I’ve been here,” senior editor Maria Scardetta said.
While the class is confident this year, they don’t ignore the fact that they have to work hard. They have after school workdays every Tuesday. Next semester, workdays are everyday, in preparation for their May deadline.
Anyone interested in submitting can go see Mr. Del Castillo in room C209. For students eager to be in the class, Savrola urges young writers to talk to their counselor and Mr. Del Castillo. Savrola has their first open mic poetry reading on October 28 from seven to eight thirty in the Black Box Theatre, where anyone can read their original poetry.
