“Mirrors of the Soul” is a literary magazine here at South. The magazine wasvstarted 20 years ago. It was formed to give students a voice and a way to display their literature and art.   The literary magazine adviser, Janis Schuberth, has been running the magazine for the past 8 years. Last year the magazine entered in competition and last year the staff received high honors from a national organization.

The magazine itself is put together by a staff consisting of students and the magazine will be include some of their writings and submissions by students other South students.

Schuberth explains what she is specifically looking for in this year’s edition. The theme is wanderlust; giving a variety of things students can embrace, specifically the rollercoaster that is life.

“I’m looking for both art and literature, so we’re looking for journeys through life because everyone’s journey through life is different- so pieces that show what your journey means to you, the person’s take, and the different obstacles a person faces are the types of writings and art work we will take,” Schuberth said.

Editor-in-chief senior Addison Graham explains how students can start getting their writings and artwork into the magazine.

“Talk to your English teacher and they will have forms to fill out for your submissions, or you can go straight to Mrs. Schuberth,” Graham said.

Something encouraging and comes as high incentive for submitting writing is that after a student submits their piece and it is selected their name will go into the magazine with many other students, and they’ll be able to put that on their resume that they are a published author or artist.

All submissions for the magazine are due February 16th. Submissions must be original writings and artwork.

If you’re looking to join the staff next year start by taking the elective Creative Writing, then take the actual class that puts the magazine together, Creative Writing II.
