Irvington High School’s Creative Writing Club is a student-run, interest-based club dedicated to providing a welcoming environment for writers of all kinds to convene and share their ideas outside of an academic setting. Members get a taste of publication through submitting to The Penchant, our online literary magazine. Meanwhile, monthly prompts, in-club competitions, and major writing contests are provided to allow members to explore the implications of writing, improve on their own techniques, and receive feedback from their fellow peers. Overall, our collective mission is to enable the students of Irvington to write what they wish and have their voices heard.
"When walking through the 'valley of shadows,' remember, a shadow is cast by a Light." -Austin O'Malley *** We all have our inner struggles. As the year reaches its end, these last few months are a time of remembrance, reflection, and acceptance. Of who we are and how we came to be. Of the laughter preserved in our memories and the sorrow within our chests. Of the past and the present. Of the self. The theme for our December magazine is INCANDESCENT: characterized by glowing brightness and passion.
