What's up kids? First of all, welcome, ladiezzz + gents, to this most auspicious first issue of TRILL Magazine
. If you were wondering, we’re an arts magazine specific for all of you (yes, even you hooligans). We are a group of teenagers (and our rad publishing managers, Marie and Janet), who get together and put together a collection of work submitted by y’all, the teenage artists.
I am your Visual Arts editor, and I like taking photographs (check out my photography blog
), dancing, and eating copious amounts of Girl Scout cookies. Also on staff is Shanita, our Spoken Word editor, Will, our Music editor, Rio, our Poetry editor, and Aidan, our Digital Arts editor. We're hoping there will be some of you out there who want to get in on the fun and join our creative staff
or become a regular guest blogger
-- got a particular passion for theater or dance, love to spout off about the latest book you read, call yourself an indie-film freak or do you just want to share random thoughts about the creativity that you see around you, or maybe that only you can see?? Just send us your idea: firstname.lastname@example.org
or sign up to write your own blog HERE.
To bring it all home, we’re looking forward to bringing you art, exposure, inspiration, knowledge, and all that jazz. Enjoy TRILL's first issue
and let us know what you think! You can comment here or on any of our blogs
-- yes, we do check out the comments before they are posted -- so keep it clean and constructive -- but don't be afraid to state exactly what you think. And be sure to submit
for next month. So for now friends, enjoy, get inspired and get pumped. Have an awesome day -- keep it true. Keep it real. Maren Hurley, Visual Arts Editor
