We have also been privileged to work with Questar III’s New Visions Visual and Performing Arts program for the second year in a row. High school students from a range of local tri-city schools joined us for our flat-plan and lay out meetings to learn the processes of editorializing a magazine. Here is artwork from one of their featured creatives: You Are What You Eat by Peyton Taylor.

Integrated within the upcoming edition of the magazine is a middle/high school student competition run in partnership with Aralia Education. We would like to congratulate Yitong Li for winning the first place prize out of the 75 submissions received. Her piece is called: The Environmental Odyssey of Young Carlos Roberto Mejia. Her work was published alongside 13 other incredible writing pieces that we hope you will enjoy.

Several pieces were also long listed and published on our blog. Visit www.creativity-unleashed.org to see those pieces.

Finally, we also accepted some submissions from a sixth form college in Tottenham, London – students who work on a literary arts magazine called The Phoenix. These creatives are denoted in the magazine by LAET – London Academy of Excellence, Tottenham.

Information regarding our 2024 magazine launch, which will be a hybrid both in person and online, will be sent out soon. You can also sign up for the CU newsletter for updates at the bottom of our website: www.creativity-unleashed.org
