Webb Canyon Chronicle

Webb students cook up delicious & nutritious Breakfast

Emma Lin (’20)
Don’t forget to drop off your contest submissions in the cereal box in Fawcett Library!

When you wake up in the morning, what is the first thing you think about? Breakfast, of course! Hot off the press, Breakfast is Webb’s new literary magazine where students can showcase their creative talents in fiction, poetry, art, and photography.

Dr. Elizabeth Cantwell is the faculty advisor of this spring season afternoon activity group featuring eleven Webb students. Seven of the students are editors/directors, while the other four are associate editors.

Head Designer Michael Su (‘21) believes that Breakfast’s objective is “to spread literature and art made by Webb students. While the Webb Canyon Chronicle is journalism, we aim to collect individual, creative works.”

Along with submitting their work recreationally, students also have the opportunity to participate in the magazine’s contest. At the moment, Breakfast is offering three categories for students to compete in: fiction, poetry, art, and photography.

The fiction contest asks participants to submit a story not more than ten pages long. For the poetry competition, students should submit one to five poems, and the art and photography contest asks for one to ten pieces.

Breakfast is accepting submissions for its first issue until April 15th. Pieces do not have to be written in English. All contest submissions are due by Friday, March 29th, at 10:30 p.m., and can be submitted by email to [email protected] or a hard copy can be dropped off at the cereal box in the Fawcett Library. Winners of the contest will be featured on the website and will receive breakfast (Starbucks) on the morning of their choosing.

Although there is a competitive aspect, you do not need to win to be featured in the magazine. To enter a submission, simply put a hard copy in the designated cereal box in the library, or send your work electronically to [email protected]. Hard copies require a cover sheet with your name and email address, and submissions via email should have an attachment with no identifying information. Submissions will be judged and discussed anonymously, and you may remain anonymous if you wish.

Feel free to check out their Instagram page @breakfastatwebb or visit their website to check out more ways you can contribute to this budding literary magazine.

Embracing her new role as the Editor of Culture & Lifestyle for the Webb Canyon Chronicle, Emma hopes to approach more articles with an angle and drive her topics towards a compelling focus. Having lived in both California and Hong Kong growing up, Emma’s experience of contrasting cultures and lifestyles prove that she is indeed the right person for the job.

Connor Walker (‘19) is a man of many talents; he can safely handle knives and can even walk to Westfield Santa Anita from his home in Arcadia. While he considers himself more of a creative writer, Connor participated in middle school newspaper and will utilize his experience during his first year of work at the Webb Canyon Chronicle. Connor learned to be prepared and efficient during his six years with the Boy Scouts. Along his journey to achieving the rank of First Class, he learned to appreciate nature, develop survival skills, and nurture a love for antiques. He likes etymologies and is interested in anthropology. Perhaps one day he will study archaeology or work in a museum. Until then, he will try to find a way to use the word “apian” in his writing.
