Civitas…TOL’s Literary Magazine

How do you see the world? Share your unique perspective by submitting your creative work to Civitas – Tree of Life’s very own literary magazine. Civitas is the Latin word for “community” – a title that we believe embodies our desire to celebrate our community through creativity, beauty, diversity, and the pursuit of Truth. We are excited to kick off the submission process for our magazine’s second edition by announcing this year’s theme: “perspective”.

Students in grades 9-12 may submit poetry, prose, and art by sharing their work with civitasliterarymagazine@gmail.com. All submissions must be shared by Friday, January 3rd (the last day of Christmas break). A student staff will meet over J-term to narrow selections and curate the magazine. Last year saw over 120 submissions – we are hoping for even more this year!
