In our continued mission to serve the community of Santa Barbara High School, the Forge is excited to announce a completely new endeavor this year: the Forge Magazine. In a strange world where human connection seems harder than ever, the goal of the magazine is to help give a platform to the voices and visions of student artists at Santa Barbara High School. This includes artists of all kinds, from the visual artists of VADA to the multimedia designers of MAD, and the individual writers, comic artists, and creatives throughout the school. We are beginning by publishing the works of VADA sophomores in their English 10 classes, representing the culmination of their unit on culture and identity. The theme of these works is “Identity in a Time of Crisis.” We will continue to publish a diverse range of pieces representing varied backgrounds and viewpoints throughout the year.
If you or someone you know is an artist at Santa Barbara High School and wants their works showcased in our paper, submission can be sent to [email protected]. Please include your name, grade, the medium, and the phrase “Magazine Submission” in the subject line.
We look forward to receiving your submissions and shining a spotlight on the many talented students at Santa Barbara High School.
