About Stepping Stones:

Stepping Stones Literary Magazine is an extracurricular student publication that showcases the creative writing and artistic talents of a variety of Park Ridge middle school students. The magazine is developed throughout the school year by students who joined the staff and are interested in promoting creative expression.  All students in grades 7 and 8 are encouraged to join and to submit their original work for consideration.  Submissions may be generated from classroom assignments, or self motivated pieces written specifically for the magazine. The staff meets regularly to promote interest, brainstorm ideas for themes, review submissions, and consider layout.
