From the Editors

First published in the fall of 1992, The Living Hand was actually the fourth literary magazine in Ravenscroft history. Prior publications include Of Time and Tides (1973), Wax Paradox (from 1974 to 1981), and Mindstage (beginning in 1981) . For the second year and the sixth iteration, the magazine is in a digital realm. Highlighting a wide range of student-produced work, from poetry to short stories to nonfiction, as well as art, photography, and multimedia, there’s so much to explore. Since going digital in the last issue, we have been able to accept many forms of art, including physical pieces and video experiences. We aspire to grow the multimedia section of our magazine in future years. We’d like to give a big thank you to our entire Living Hand team: the editors, media team, teacher/student liaisons, website creators, marketing group, and you, the students. Because without you, we wouldn’t have been able to get to the point where we are today. So showcasing lots of hard work from everyone involved, here is The Living Hand.
