The Maze, expressely produced for and by students, formed a five student editorial board which selected 30 student submissions from a field of 45 for its first issue. Writing consists of poetry, short stories, non-fiction. Art submissions included drawings and photography.
English teacher Corinth Matera provided funding for the The Maze with prize money that came to her with the Minneapolis Educator Leadership award. For that, she was nominated by fellow teacher Tanya Hodge.
Matera also dedicated that prize money to enhancing curriculum by bringing in Spoken Word artists and speakers for English classes.
The next issue of The Maze
is expected to be released in spring of 2017!
