Last year, we debuted the Southridge Literary Magazine, Meraki,  and were met with very positive feedback from our community. This year, help us continue the Southridge Literary Magazine in its second edition! In order to print a magazine of approximately 100 pages of student art and writing through Cedar House Media, we will need $600 to cover our printing costs. We hope to make this publication as accessible to our students as possible, regardless of socio-economic status, and to do so, we require the support of our community to provide a creative outlet.


In a time where students feel like they aren’t heard, many rely on creative outlets, like creative writing and art, as a means by which to share their voices on issues that matter. At Southridge, we do not feel that any barrier should stand between our students and their capacity to generate and share work that reflects their artistic and literary ambitions. For this reason, we hope you will support us in our goal of publishing a print-based literary magazine.


The Southridge Literary Magazine aims to showcase the talents of student writers and artists. Through the publishing process, students are provided with the opportunity to cultivate a thoughtful and impassioned collection of student work, reflective of the diverse voices of our student body. The magazine contains poetry, short stories, paintings, drawings, sculpture, photography, memoir, and other forms of creative expression. Students do not only have the opportunity to submit their own work for publication, but also learn how the publishing process works from the perspective of the editor. This process will provide invaluable experiences for students hoping to pursue collaborative careers and also support the evolution of our creative community.


Throughout the year, our students will generate art and writing for submission, review the work of their peers, and digitally format the layout of the magazine. They will also have the opportunity for recognition through art and writing competitions at the international level, as well as a community oriented around the celebration of student work. Please do not let the hard work of our students be in vain. The creative voices of our students are much too powerful to remain silenced. Please donate to support the printing and future of the Southridge Literary Magazine!
