Letter from the Editor
All throughout high school I have found myself longing for a space to share my artistic endeavors with my peers, and when I discovered that The Maroon used to have a Literary Magazine I immediately knew I needed to revive it. During the creation of this magazine, its purpose has gone from simply a space to share art and writing, to giving a voice to the creative personalities of the school. It is so important to appreciate the arts and young artists, and this magazine is my small contribution, showcasing the incredible work that New Paltz High School students have done both in and outside of school. I am endlessly grateful to all the talented students that made this magazine possible with their contributions, and I hope that you all enjoy reading the Literary Magazine as much as I have enjoyed making it!
