  • Published!

    Please join us in congratulating Sidney on her poem, Unconventional Freedom, which will soon be published in ASU's Canyon Voices Literary Magazine. This piece came out of her AS Lang unit on The Great Gatsby, where students, after studying various historical and cultural elements of the 1920s, were asked to write a didactic poem about that time period. WE ARE SO PROUD OF YOU, SIDNEY! Keep up the fabulous work!
