The Loom, Loomis Chaffee’s student-led literary publication, has released its Fall 2019 online edition featuring a collection of original creative writing and artwork by students on the theme of “Space.”
Published on December 13, the online edition of The Loom “Space” Fall 2019
“The writers and artists who submitted work were encouraged to think broadly and creatively about this theme,” commented English teacher Kate Saxton who serves as director of Writing Initiatives and as The Loom faculty advisor.
Published twice during the school year — a themed digital edition in the fall and a general print edition in spring — The Loom celebrates the interconnectedness of the literary and visual arts.
Students are invited to submit their work for inclusion in the magazine, and submissions of previously completed class assignments are welcome. Invitations to submit appear in the Daily Bulletin, and Loom staff also make announcements during class meetings. Student staff members and Kate review submissions in a selection process that seeks to publish a variety of voices and styles.
When not directly involved in publishing an edition, The Loom serves as a literary society and club for students with an affinity for creative expression.
