  • A message from Out of the Blue Magazine: 

Kevin - Once upon a time, there was a man who was allergic to himself. Everywhere he went he would cough and sneeze and rub his eyes. But one day, his friend… 

Sam - Hey, that sounds like a good story. Why don’t you submit that to the literary magazine?

Kevin - No. Anyway, his friend, who’s name was Max, said…

Sam - So WHY don’t you want to submit that to the magazine?

Kevin - Cause I said so. Max said, why don’t you wear this…

Sam - That’s kind of stupid, right? If you submitted your story to the literary magazine, hundreds of people would read it, and he would get credit for it.

Kevin - Out of the Blue needs lots of types of creative work. Some of these are stories, poetry, artwork, photographs, music, and comics.

Sam - Out of the Blue is run in room 312 by Mrs. Olsen, the English teacher on the Garnet team. Contact her for further information.
