Teen Spirit: Issue #6

Literati is pleased to host Teen Spirit, an award-winning publication of the Skyline High School Writing Center. Teen Spirit is a literary magazine that allows students to share their writing, art, photography, songs, and videos with our broader community, providing them an authentic audience for their work. This event will feature several exceptional Skyline student writers reading their fiction, poetry, and essays from the fifth edition of Teen Spirit publicly for the first time.

Teen Spirit, an award-winning, student-produced publication of the Skyline High School Writing Center, returns to Literati for its Fourth Annual Release Party.  Teen Spirit collects writing, photography, visual art, and multimedia from students across Skyline’s creative environment in order to present them to our community.

This event will feature several exceptional Skyline student writers reading their fiction, poetry, and essays from Teen Spirit publicly for the first time.

Bridgette Bauer (‘18), Emma Rose Carpenter (‘19), Bailey Christensen (‘18), Madeline Small (‘18), Floria Tsui (‘19), and Amanda Wilhoit (‘18) are the student editors in charge of curating and editing this year’s edition of Teen Spirit.

As a gift, those attending this year’s event will receive a free, hand-numbered copy of Ann Arbor as Palimpsest, a book written and produced by Skyline’s Humanities: Literature students about the hidden, contested, and unknown histories of various sites in our community.  The published book features Brian Carpenter (‘18), Nick Catanzaro (‘18), Ella Eliason (‘18), Calvin Floyd (‘18), Steph Guyor (‘18), Leo Lofy (‘18), Russell Noble (‘18), Rose Paretti (‘18), Tasha Potter (‘18), Madeline Small (‘18), Amanda Wilhoit (‘18).

The Skyline Writing Center is a student-centered peer tutoring and mentoring organization that provides high quality writing support to students every hour of every school day.  Each year, 35 qualified juniors and seniors are trained to work with all students on a wide variety of genres at any stage of the writing process.

Jeffrey Austin, a Skyline English teacher, is the program’s founder and director.
