Are you a student writer or artist looking for a way to publish your work? Do you like reading creative stories and poems and supporting your peers?

The Elicitor is an student run online literary magazine that publishes artwork, poems, short stories, and photography created by GHS students.

“My hope for the magazine is to get more people to contribute and join this year, which has been happening,” said editor Julia Johnson.

The Elicitor meets every other Wednesday in  room 3303, but you do not have to attend meetings to contribute. Anyone is welcome to submit something and the Elicitor is updated every two weeks.

“I was a contributor last year and I really liked that I could have some of my work published,” said Caroline Enos. “I’m excited to write more for The Elicitor this year.”

The Elicitor faces new changes this year as Sandra Eastman, takes over for James Cook as the new adviser for the magazine. The Elicitor staff also hopes to publish a spring edition, since they did not have enough time to print last year’s spring edition and distribute it to the community.

“I want to be an author when I grow up, and I’m planning on majoring in creative writing in college next year,” said Johnson. “This club has been a great opportunity for me.”

“I wish more people would contribute to it,” said  Eastman. “You don’t have to come to the meetings to be part of it. Students can send poems short stories, illustrations and interesting photos with a caption.

As the new adviser, one of Eastman’s goals it to publish a hard copy at the end of the year.

If you are interested in submitting something for the magazine or have any questions, please email juliajohnson@Gloucesterschools.com or jillianoliverira@Gloucesterschools.com for more information.
