We are very excited to share the news that Sidra Afzal (Class of 2017) has recently had a collection of her own original poetry made available for sale on Amazon! This is by no means the first time Sidra has been recognized for her writing – State Representative Ken Gordon came to BHS to formally recognize her for a short story that she wrote two years ago, and she has been published in the Claremont Review, Teen Ink, and Collab. She also won a poetry contest that allowed her to read her winning poem in front of an audience of over 20,000 people in Baltimore. But this marks the first time we’ve ever seen a BHS student publish a collection of poetry this significant. Congratulation to Sidra on this great achievement! We’ll post a link to the book as soon as it becomes available!
We also added a tab to our Published Authors page – check out all of our student writers!
