April's Member of the Month is none other than our fearless leader, Zarya Curren. Zarya is our editor and has put together our website and magazines all month, making it look professional and beautiful every time. They always work hard and come every meeting. Zarya's poetry is absolutely beautiful--"Echoes" literally gave me chills. Thank you, Zarya, for being such a great editor for us! We all appreciate you and love your work, and we'll miss you when you're gone next year.
Gigi is the kind of Lit Mag member that other schools dream of. When she comes to Lit Mag--and she comes every Thursday, always--she's in a happy mood. Her bright smile is contagious and her jokes make everyone laugh. Everything she submits is beautiful and well thought-out. She works hard on writing and even participated in NaNoWriMo.
Amani comes to Lit Mag every week, and that's why she got picked for Member of the Month this month. One of our most devoted members, she's always working and posting during and outside of the club. She makes everybody in the club feel welcome and happy! Amani, thank you for being a part of the Lit Mag, and thank you for making us a better club!
The Lit Mag presents... the dedicated, whimsical, clever, and all-around awesome Breah Sandre! Breah is an 8th grader, and can often be found at Lit Mag meetings, hard at work. She has submitted some wonderful writing, and read a piece of her own composition at the 3rd Annual Poetry Slam - which she also memorized! She likes to read, write, draw, play chess, and ride her bike. She also enjoys spending time with her family, friends and pet dog; walking the town, and generally enjoying life! Give it up for Breah!
December Member of the Month: Meet the incredibly talented Challan Kligman! A 7th grader, Challan joined the Lit Mag this year, and has already dazzled us with his incredible photographic talent. He has submitted numerous photos, all of which have been published and readily enjoyed by all. In his spare time, Challan enjoys taking photos (of course), bike riding, going to new places, especially art museums, and spending time with his friends and family (shout out to Oonagh and Alette!) We are very glad to have Challan on the Lit Mag, and we encourage him to keep creating!

Meet November of the Month: The Illustrious, Passionate, and Unswervingly Devoted Julia Spoor! Julia is a Sophomore, has been part of the Literary Magazine for four years, and consists of 99% of the glue that holds us all together. She enjoys dogs, bees, and feminism.
The Literary Magazine's Member of the Month award (starting now!) will generally be based on attendance to meetings and hard work - BUT if you would like to nominate a fellow member for a valid reason (a great piece of writing/artwork/photography submitted, creative and innovative ideas, intense blogging, etc.) you may also do so. Please take the time to check out our many pages and incredible work, and if you would like to make a suggestion, email Julianna or Julia at firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com. We encourage you to contribute, and thank you for all your awesome enthusiasm and hard work!
