Welcome to Retrospect

Dear readers,

Welcome to the 2017-2018 school year! We are so excited for a great year of inspiration, learning, and collaboration. The writing center is truly a hub for creativity, and we welcome you into the imaginative headspaces of our ninety-eight student writers. Our values and objectives are perhaps best articulated by American poet and civil rights activist Maya Angelou:

My wish for you is that you continue

Continue to be who and how you are

To astonish a mean world with your acts of


Continue to allow humor to lighten

The burden of your tender heart

-Maya Angelou

This year we aim to engage our readers more than ever before. We encourage you to exercise your voice and to speak to our writers. Each article you read has been written, edited, and published by your fellow students. We hope that you find the courage to voice your opinion. As your editors, we welcome you into our community.

Read. Write. Engage. Maybe you will learn something new about yourself. Or maybe we will learn something about you.
