Perpich Arts High School Literary Arts Students Present their Lit Reading “What Goes Around Comes Around”

November 11, 2022

The Literary Arts Department of Perpich Arts High School presented their first Lit Reading of the year on Thursday, November 10, 2022 before a live and virtual audience. “What Goes Around Comes Around” featured work by each student in the Literary Arts program. The content was a little bit of everything they’ve written this fall: memoir, poetry, fiction, etc.

Kevin Lally, Literary Arts Instructor, said, “I found the poems moving and powerful, and I was so impressed by the professional structure of the reading itself. The students arranged the pieces, the order, the program, the introduction, everything. And it went flawlessly! It was my first reading as the Lit Arts instructor and they taught me so much. I’m already eager for the next one!”

Li Moore (Literary Arts 2023) said, “The reading went so well! I’m proud of everyone for stepping up and taking this opportunity to present their work. Proud of all the work you all have done!!”

Riley Brown (Literary Arts 2023) said, “I was really nervous but once I finally got on stage it felt more real so I had to take a deep breath to be able to read my piece and being in that moment just made me realize I was much more capable to accomplish my goals when it comes to writing then I originally thought.”

Jae Blondo (Literary Arts 2024) said, “It was a super awesome experience. I was quite anxious and nervous going into it, and then once I got out on stage it was similar to my past experiences with choir, theater, and other shows. Once I got out on stage, I entered something similar to a ‘flow’ state and was propelled on by adrenaline and excitement.”

Congratulations to all the artists and to their instructors for a great event!
