Olivia Hunt and Maddie Hickey Stories in Philly Magazine!

Olivia and Maddie are enrolled in our Creative Writing II class and recently submitted two of their works to the Philadelphia Stories magazine, which is a community of writers, artists, and readers whose purpose is to highlight work of people in the Philadelphia region.

Part of the magazine's mission is to publish the work from students aged 12-18 in a bi-annual young writers issue. Olivia will have excerpts of her short story "Shattered Mirrors" and her one-act play "Tips" in the Philadelphia Stories youth issue. Maddie’s submission of “The Beast” was selected for print publication in PS Teen! They will also read a sample of their work at the magazine release party on November 19th in Philadelphia.
