SGS showcases literary talent

Like, Literary's editorial team

Following last year’s successful launch, we are delighted that the school’s literary magazine ‘Like, Literary’ has returned for a second edition.

The publication features articles on themes such as Creative Writing, Poetry in Music and Television and Film and it also contains reviews of books such as George Orwell’s ‘Animal Farm’ and ‘Circe’ by Madeline Miller.

This year’s version also sees the work of a Year Six pupil feature after Finn R won the Junior W S Johnston Prize.

Speaking about the process of producing the magazine, Editors Charlotte Bradley-Potts and Merryn Summersgill said: “For this edition we wanted to capture the events and experiences that shaped our community in the last year. We kept our design minimalistic but with a message behind it: the blue theme that runs throughout represents the resilience of the NHS when conquering the pandemic, a triumph we strived to feature.

“The pieces chosen by each section’s Editors highlight both historical and modern issues that students and teachers alike wanted to explore. We would like to thank all of the people who collaborated to produce such a fantastic magazine that we hope you enjoy reading, and will inspire you to write yourself!”

English Teacher Mrs Helen Roberts concluded: “The final product truly does show why we “like” to be literary here at SGS. The magazine is full of high quality, diverse writing from across the school and Mr Johnson and I would like to thank our amazing Sixth Form editors who have had such creative ideas, written beautifully, attended meetings, made (sometimes difficult) selections and made this magazine look so excellent.

“They have brought colour, imagination and a high literary quality to the whole process and we are very proud of them.”
