Meadowdale High advisor Alison Ersfeld’s dream of a school arts and literary magazine was printed and released this week. The inaugural issue, titled, “Unmasked,” features poetry, prose and artwork by Meadowdale students.
“No doubt about it,” said Ersfeld in the magazine prologue, “the teen years are often turbulent and perplexing (and creativity) though the visual arts and writing is a healthy outlet.” The Parent Resource Group helped with printing expenses, and a poetry sample follows. More information is available by calling the school office at 425-431-7650.
