FROM THE EDITOR-IN-CHIEF
Literature and art inspire us. They ask us to think. To question. Creative works exist in every culture. They are a way to exchange ideas and expand our perspectives. Art, in all forms, asks us to continually seek.
In my search, I noticed a void for homeschool literary opportunities. This lack of options became my motivation for The Phoenix as a way to support and encourage an outlet for other high school students.
The homeschooling community is full of diverse individuals. Even though we are often educated individually or within small groups The Phoenix is a way to create a larger community of writers and artists. Not bound by a location, homeschool students are taught all over the world. They provide unique experiences and perspectives.
The Phoenix hopes to recognize homeschool creativity by publishing literature and art online from around the world, providing the homeschool community a common space. The magazines first issue was in March 2017.
