Parallax

Parallax is the Ramaz writing club and literary magazine. At meetings we hold creative writing workshops, during which we write, read, and gently critique student poetry and prose. Parallax publishes an annual literary magazine, in addition to a creative writing section in the yearbook.

Our magazine has won the gold medal from the Columbia Scholastic Press Association for the past five years. In addition, for the past two years, we have won the Silver Crown Award, an honor earned by only nine high school literary magazines in the country. Parallax also helps to run the annual Celebration of the Arts night. Members often read their work aloud for this evening. Writers address the club once or twice a year, and members of the club attend public poetry readings. For anyone who loves to write, but never has the time or discipline, Parallax provides a writing home and just the little push you may need.

Faculty Advisor: Dr. Edith Honig

Ramblings has high standards for its publication, but welcomes all writers, for it won't be long until they've mastered their craft like the rest of the Ramblings crew.
