Del Val High School releases literary magazine


This year’s edition of Changing Perspectives, Delaware Valley High School’s literary magazine, was released at an evening reception in the library on June 3.

This year’s theme was “Continuity,” and the editors-in-chief were sisters Maggie and Clare Erwin of Holland Township, N.J.

The magazine staff, which perennially wins a ton of accolades, is advised by English teacher Molly Esposito. The magazine sponsors a competition earlier in the school year, and the submissions are then published in the magazine. Alumni are invited to submit their work, too.
