Making a literary magazine every year is expensive. We here at Aloha do not want to see that stop us from creating a literary magazine that shares the voices and imaginations of the students at our school. So each year we do a variety of fundraisers to make sure this project can be completed. The cost, however, is high, and we sometimes need to find other resources, like grants, to help make this project possible. And this year we hope to print more lit mags and in a larger size. This will increase the cost.

Aeternum, Aloha High School's literary magazine, is a collection of student's creative works. We have works such as paintings, poetry, short stories, plays, sculptures, etc. in this magazine. The students work all year on fundraisers, creative writing competitions, collecting submissions, and then, finally, working on INDesign to design the literary magazine. The students work really hard to get these voices on the page!


Your support would help us with our printing costs. We do anticipate printing more magazines this year to share even more with the larger community. Aeternum is an art-filled, bound magazine full of color images. The estimated date of publication is mid-March. We will have a release party that all are invited to. When we measure the success of our project, we look at a variety of things. We measure the quality of the submissions and the design of the literary magazine. We also send our literary magazine to the NCTE program in order to have it judged. 


But we don't just stop with getting voices on the page - we also strive to get the voices out in the community. Last year's literary magazine is currently being sold at Powell's Book Store! We also submitted Aeternum to the National Council of Teacher's of English (NCTE) Program to Recognize Excellence in Student Literary Magazines and won an award of "Recommended for Highest Award." This is a great achievement, and we would like to continue the work!
