A Letter From the Editors
beginning /bɪˈɡɪnɪŋ/ noun : the point in time or space at which something begins.
At this moment in time and space, something has indeed begun. Something that began when two eager hopefuls ached for a space to create, inspire and discover enticing content crafted by one alike. In a pursuit to be different and do different, we managed to devise something big over late night skype calls and hastily typed out emails. Something called ‘The Scribe’; A representation of many facets of a single, idea-divulging mind. United in voice but individualised by perspective.
There’s a certain vagueness in ‘somethings’, however. What exactly is The Scribe?
Well, primarily, it is a school magazine; but we like to think of it is as a stage. A stage to say your piece. A stage to showcase your art. A stage to sing your heart out. A stage where you can uninhibitedly, unabashedly be you.
“Be yourself” is a phrase that is grossly overused by the Oprahs and Step Up movies of the world. What does it even mean? If you cannot define it for yourself, we certainly cannot define it for you. That’s where the beauty of The Scribe lies – in its lack of boundaries, in its lack of definitions. If you have something to say, say it. Let your passion smother you. Let your voice be heard. And most importantly, let the Scribe help you get there.
Submissions in the form of writing, art and videos are always welcome at firstname.lastname@example.org. The theme for next month (October) is going to be ‘Colours’.
We encourage each and every one of you to submit, and we look forward to receiving your contributions!
