Life in a File: Chapter Two

By Emily Moore

I groan as I hear loud stumbling from the room beside mine. “Oh my god, does she not know how to be quiet!” I huff, beating my fist against the wall repeatedly before dropping my head back onto my pillow.

Creative Writing Shares Their Works

At Tri-City Prep, there is a group of students who make up the Creative Writing club. These students meet on Wednesday every week to discuss their writing and criticize the writing of their peers.

A couple weeks ago they decided to undergo a project where they would post a chapter of an ongoing story every couple of weeks. Each student would write a chapter and introduce new characters, and then the person with the next chapter would pick one of those characters and write from their perspective.

The first chapter is up. It is under the Extras tab on the menu. From there, you should get a drop down menu with Creative Writing. There you can find their collective story and a couple of nature writings done by individuals in the club.

Once you can hear it then, and only then, are you really part of nature.
