Golden Hour Calls for Creative Student Submissions

Previously known as The Roar, the MJHS creative magazine Golden Hour is calling for creative submissions from students. The submission deadline is currently March 20.

The Hour is looking for creative works of short stories, poetry, photography, paintings, creative non-fiction, digital designs, drawings, and all other media.

All MJHS students are eligible to submit. Submissions are taken on Google Classroom with the code scjklkm. All submission requirements can be found on the Google Forms posted there.

The best visual work and the best literary work will each receive $20 and a cover feature on the spring issue.

The staff is also hoping to incorporate a lot of interactive elements into the magazine, such as crossword puzzles, coloring pages, etc.

Spring issues will go on sale in April.

The name was suggested by Joseph Hamilton of Vanderbilt, as a part of the team conducting its experiments, in honor of Tennessee where most tests were conducted. Other new elements added at the Moscow conference included Moscovium and Oganesson.
