Production on our first print issue started in earnest around Valentine’s Day; it was released on March 10, 2008. We used Adobe InDesign for formatting. The majority of the text is in Adobe Garamond Pro. If you have any feedback, leave it in the comments on this article or email a staff member. We welcome any submission by any member of the community–middle schoolers, upper schoolers, and faculty alike. Thanks for reading!
