The Phoenix is Townsend Harris High School’s award winning, student-run literary magazine that seeks to inspire and promote creativity within the student body. Each year we publish numerous ‘zines and chapbooks, host multiple events and trips, and – of course – publish our annual “final” collection of student-produced artwork. We meet every Thursday in Room 404 after school, where we divide into the following sections based on preference: writing, art, photography, design, and critiquing.
