Last week, volume 21 of HELM (Harker Eclectic Literature & Media) was released online via Issuu. It is the first issue of the annual student magazine to be published online upon release. This year’s collection of student-created poetry, essays, short stories and visuals deals with the subject of nostalgia and how it is experienced by the current generation of high schoolers. “We’re often left out of the conversation about generation differences, as a part of the in-between: too young to have grown up watching ‘The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air’ while munching on Hubba Bubba gum, but not young enough to have spent our toddler years hogging the iPad to play with virtual toys,” reads the foreword by editors-in-chief Annie Ma and Amla Rashingkar, both seniors.
The magazine is readable in web browsers and available as a download in PDF format.
