Briars and Ivy

By: Adya Tiwari

Briars & Ivy is an award-winning, student-run literary magazine. Every year, the club showcases the high school community’s artwork, written pieces and films that reflect the current artistic and literary culture. The staff, with senior Eve Tanios (editor-in-chief), produces this publication by anonymously reviewing student submissions, then formatting and editing the magazine for publishing at the end of the school year. Briars & Ivy recently hosted a writing contest that was inspired by the University of Chicago essay prompts, “How did you get caught?” and “You’re on a voyage in the thirteenth century, sailing across the tempestuous seas. What if, suddenly, you fell off the edge of the Earth?” The winner, freshman Sofia Choudhri, wrote a piece for the first prompt with themes of racial injustice in court.  If you would like to publish your artistic and literary talent, please send your submissions to
