2015 Collab – Nearly Gone

As we draw near to the end of the school year, our supplies of the 2015 edition of Collab (volume 43) are running out – we only have ten remaining copies on hand, as well as a few copies at True North Coffee for sale. Remember, once they’re gone, they’re gone – if you would like to purchase a copy before they sell out, please see Mr. Lally in room 200, or stop by True North Coffee in Burlington to pick one up. The cost is $10.

2015 Collab – Selling fast!

We’ve had our editions of Volume 43 for less than 3 weeks and we’re amazed at how quickly it is selling out! We’ve already sold two-thirds of our copies of the magazine, and when they’ve sold out, they’re gone forever! If you are interested in getting a copy before they are gone, there are three ways you can buy one:

1) See Mr. Lally or one of our Head Editors during the school day

2) Click on the PURCHASE tab on the top of this page – you’ll go to our online storefront, where you can buy a copy with a credit card (free shipping!)

3) Go to True North in Burlington – they have copies for sale, and they also have amazing blueberry muffins.

The cost is $10.

Recent accolades for Collab:
2014 NCTE Superior Rating – nominated for Highest Award in MA (highest-ranked student literary magazine in the state)
2014 ASPA First Place Rating (ranked #2 in Massachusetts)

Open Mic Night at BHS is a Huge Success!

Thank you to everyone, family, friends, and participants, who came out to the BHS Open Mic Night this evening! We had a great time, heard some excellent poems, essays, and stories (¡y en español tambien!) and got a chance to see some of the amazing and talented writers from BHS in action.

We do not have any photos from the event, because Sidra is right – we need to live in the moment.

We also would like to announce that the Out of Print Fundraiser helped us raise $140 for the magazine – thank you to all of you who contributed!


Collab Open Mic Night at True North – April 15th at 6PM

Sales for Collab Vol. 43 Start Monday

Starting Monday, 3/30, we’ll have a sales table in the cafeteria lobby during lunch for the latest edition of Collab, which is scheduled to arrive either this week or next. The magazine costs $10 and features the original fiction, poetry, artwork and essays of BHS students, selected by our staff of student editors.

If you cannot pick up a copy at lunch, you can see Mr. Lally to purchase one.

In the past 2 years, Collab has been one of the top high school literary magazines in the US according to the the 2013 NCTE literary magazine competition, and received First Place recognition in the 2014 ASPA contest. The 2015 edition looks to be equally strong! Order yours today!
