When the May 2013 student publication of Freedom Arts was released, one luncheon guest was Dr. Mo H. Saidi, CEO/co-founder and managing editor of Voices de la Luna. Afterwards, Dr. Saidi visited with Mr. Pat Booker, Freedom Arts faculty sponsor/editor, about student submissions to Voices de la Luna.
On July 15, the summer hard copy of Voices de la Luna was published. Three WSSA student works appear in this issue. These works are “Song of Grendel” by Sara Tobon (’13), “Pelicans (and Similar Topics) by Andrew P., and “Gehanna” by William C. and Josh P.
