Submissions to the The Vision, Hammond’s award-winning literary magazine, are now open. Students must fill out the Vision’s digital submission form (at https://goo.gl/forms/0oDeEsKreQxReA5x2), as well as email their submissions to the Vision at firstname.lastname@example.org or turn in a hard copy to Mrs. Goff. The current submissions deadline is January 1st.
This year, The Vision is under the leadership of Jasmine Joseph and Ina O’Ryan, with faculty advisor Mrs. Goff. The previous two years, The Vision was led by Tess McRae, who brought The Vision from a paper pamphlet to a glossy, color-printed magazine. Under the leadership of McRae, The Vision also won two awards: Volume II, Issue II of The Vision earned an “Above Average” ranking from the National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE), and Volume III of The Vision earned a “Recommended for Highest Award” ranking from the NCTE as well.
O’Ryan spoke on the magazine’s goals for submissions. “We want a wide range of submissions, from people all over Hammond in any subject.” The Vision is especially seeking submissions related to math. “We’re hoping to reach out to the math department and have students submit their projects from math, like how physics students submit their [extra-credit] pictures.” Specifically, students can submit art projects required for math classes, such as geometry or transformation projects.
Students can also participate in The Vision’s Winter Poetry Contest, which will take place the week before winter break.
