Commack High School's Etchings 2020

Please consider...

From the Editors:
After a year of hard work, dedication, and collaboration, I’m happy to share with you and the rest of our community this year’s publication of Etchings Literary and Art Magazine. I wish I could present it to you differently – covers bound, glossy pages, and that new book smell of paper and ink, but life always takes an unexpected turn; forcing you to reinvent, rediscover, and reimagine...Sydney Linford
Please know that each poem we have created has immense value. Poetry, like any art, is subjective. There are good poems and there are bad poems, and you and I may disagree on which are which. The perceived quality of a poem has nothing to do with its value. Whether the value is found by the author while writing it, the reader while reading it, or even the audience member listening to it, poems all have value in some capacity. While a poem or poetic style can be disliked, it does not alter the poem’s ability to affect people...Paige Robinson 
Proceeds from sales of the magazine are usually donated to Literacy Suffolk - in lieu of donations, we would like to encourage readers to visit Literacy Suffolk's website and consider donating to this worthy cause:

Mission Statement:
Literacy Suffolk, Inc. affects countywide change by improving individual literacy and adult literacy skills through the valuable use of trained volunteers, by expanding community awareness and by providing literacy to all adults, especially those of low to moderate incomes who are underserved and limited in their abilities to advance themselves and their families, and to allow them to contribute and partake in the fruits of our society.

Etchings: Commack High School's Annual Arts and Literary Magazine

Etchings is a place where Commack High School’s creative writers gather to share, revise, and publish our work.  We continually strive to improve our craft through providing a supportive and encouraging environment. 


If you are interested, and are in grades 10 through 12, come to our meetings on Wednesdays at 2:30 in room 119. If you have any questions, please see Mr. Dineen.
