Carson High School’s Advanced Creative Writing Class published their 2024 issue of the Student Literary Magazine, “Bolt of Blue.” This year’s edition delves into the student-chosen theme of "Breaking Cycles."

Across cultures and epochs, the concept of breaking free from repetitive patterns, whether societal, personal or historical has been a central motif in literature. It speaks to the universal human struggle for liberation, transformation and the quest for a better future. From poetry that whispers of quiet revolutions to prose that roars with defiance, each piece reflects the power of storytelling to inspire, provoke and ignite change.

“I am honored to be once again serving as Editor in Chief of Carson High School's ‘Bolt of Blue Literary Magazine,” said Anna Wilkerson, Carson High Advanced Creative Writing teacher. “And to have had the privilege to work with this year's incredible group of talented young writers.”

The writers whose work is featured are Seniors Charlotte Albin, Kaylie Brown, Juan Jose Cabrera-Camarena, Viviana Castro, Jay Coe, Isabel Coffman, Paige Foley, Alina Gastelo, Emily Goodwin, Brooklyn Grundy, Danyl Handley, Sophia Jimenez, Luet Lobsien, Halle Martin, Kaz Matson, Mars McIntosh, Christopher Mitchell, Kenzie Ramirez, Julyeta Romero-Erazo, Isabella Stagliano, Danielle Varin and Lacey Williams.
