 Gull Lake’s district-wide literary magazine, The Impression, is getting rebooted this year thanks to five dedicated students. The Impression is a student-run magazine that features art and writing works created solely by current Gull Lake students.

The Impression is not a new addition to the district–though it has been over 10 years since the magazine’s last publication. Some Gull Lake alumni may remember contributing to The Impression in past publications.

“It used to be a thing a long time ago,” said Impression Marketing chief and junior Athena Osburn. “It started [again] at the end of last year.”

According to Osburn, The Impression is gaining momentum but still needs more support.

“We need more submissions and members who aren’t seniors,” Osburn said.

The Impression staff is working to advertise not only with posters around the school but on social media. It has an Instagram @theimpressionglcs and Twitter @TheImpressionGL. Students can follow those accounts to stay updated and informed about what is happening. If one is fond of literature related quotes, the Twitter is highly recommended.

There are currently five positions on The Impression’s editorial staff: Editor in Chief, Public Relations editor, Photography editor, Marketing Chief and Design editor. The advisor is Gull Lake ELA teacher, Gail Goebel.

Osburn worked on a grant over the summer for The Impression which recently got approved.

“Lit mag [The Impression] is lit,” Osburn said. “Everybody should join.”

The Impression is accepting submissions from any Gull Lake student who wants to share a work of art or writing to their email, expressions@gulllakecs.org by November 1. The editorial staff will select, compile and work with students to revise submissions and then sell the finished product district-wide.
