Literary Magazine

What exactly is the Literary Magazine?

Our award-winning publication is one of three at NCHS – in addition to the newspaper and the yearbook.  We are a collection of the year’s best student and staff writing and artwork; we publish poems, short stories, essays, plays, photos, drawings, paintings and mixed media/digital art.  The full-color 40+ page magazine is one we develop and design throughout the fall and spring and publish in May.
