Student Publications

Piece of Mind

Editors: Jocelyn Sabin, Lauren Wei
Founded: Spring 2018

Provides a safe platform for students to share their experiences, anonymously or otherwise, regarding mental health.

From the editors: “We only launched last spring, so this year we are focused on establishing a presence. We built a website and collaborated with some other clubs. Our board has been amazing at coming up with interesting, creative ideas for the publication.”

 

 

Azaad

Editors: Akua Owusu, Natasha Roy, Adrian Hackney
Founded: 2016

Uses language to bridge cultural gaps and foster important conversations about culture and identity at Milton. Through creative writing, art and op-eds, helps students gain insight into somebody else’s world and also take a closer look into their own.

From the editors: “We focus on bringing new voices to the table and encouraging students who wouldn’t ordinarily share their perspectives. Our most recent issue centers on the theme of ‘Outsider.’ The submissions were surprising in many ways. It’s easy to forget how little we really know about each other’s stories and struggles. We were also pleasantly surprised to see how our peers have found strength and power in feeling like an outsider.”

 

Helix

Editors: Kate Jones, Ryan Choi
Founded: 2006

Fosters an appreciation of science and educates Milton about current advances in STEM. Presents this information in a way that is attainable for everyone while still upholding high scientific writing standards.

From the editors: “We strive to present science in engaging and understandable ways. The first issue this year will contain five formal scientific articles about current events in STEM. The graduation issue contains interviews of seniors interested in STEM. Along the way, we learn about different people’s writing processes and how to respect those differences.”

 

Magus Mabus

Editors: Serena Fernandopulle, Hana Widerman
Founded: 1966

Showcases student literary and artistic work. Hosts beatnik cafés (open-mic nights) throughout the school year to provide another place where students can explore their artistry.

From the editors: “The writers at Milton are diverse, lively and open, so it is great to facilitate a place for us to come together. A goal this year is to get submissions from students who aren’t in creative writing or visual arts classes. We want to expand subject matter and form, and to show creative work inspired outside of a school setting.”

 

Loose Leaf (formerly known as the Asian)

Editors: Jennifer Chen, Hana Widerman, Tara O’Malley
Founded: 2018

Focuses on the experiences of Asian students and faculty. Shares stories and art with the school to provide a platform for issues pertaining to the Asian community at Milton and beyond.

 

 

 

 

The F-Word

Editors: Amira Brown, Adrian Hackney
Founded: Winter 2015

Initiates dialogue about gender equality and feminism at Milton and the world beyond.

From the editors: “We aim to spark conversation about feminism and encourage students to become advocates for gender equality. We hope to highlight the experiences of marginalized gender groups who represent a variety of identities, including race, religion and sexual orientation. We enjoy hearing students’ stories from a variety of backgrounds. Each person holds unique experiences and a distinct relationship with feminism.”

 

Yearbook

Editors: Jeanna Shaw, Jessica Blanksteen, Jack Panarese
Founded: A long, long time ago

Designed to document lasting memories for Milton Academy students, especially each year’s graduating class, and to be a venue for creativity and community.

From the editors: “This year we are streamlining the process and redesigning major parts of the yearbook to make it more representative of the student body and more fun. Our photographers are working hard to bring in a wider variety of photos and the layout team has more creative license to develop something original.”

WHY WE NEED JOURNALISTS

Publishing stories: researching, interviewing, analyzing, reporting and responding—is challenging and in some cases, dangerous. Has the profession been affected by the wave of invectives, the efforts to sow mistrust, the drive to discredit journalists’ work? What seems difficult and what is rewarding about reporting on the world? Journalists are critical agents in helping us develop the awareness and the acuity to understand our world and to inform our choices.
