In this article on Literary Hub, Writer’s Relief learned that students at Deltona High School in Florida are running one of the BEST literary journals out there—by any standards:
Now, at just four years old, Howl is the first and only high school literary journal to be a member of the Community of Literary Magazines and Presses (CLMP)… In the last four years, Deltona students have interviewed two Nobel Laureates in Literature, several US Poet Laureates, and many Pulitzer Prize winners, as well as established writers working in every genre. Among others, they’ve interviewed Zadie Smith, Wole Soyinka, Anne Carson, Gay Talese, J.M. Coetzee, Tracy K. Smith, Claudia Rankine, Yiyun Li, Louise Glück, and, memorably, Lawrence Ferlinghetti, who, at 96, hand-wrote single-sentence answers to all of the students’ questions…In February of 2014, students conducted what would turn out to be Maya Angelou’s last recorded interview, which is now preserved in the archives of the Library of Congress, and which you can listen to here.
