Get Your Copy of The
Typewriter’s Vendetta Today!
The Typewriter's Vendetta is a
literary arts magazine that the RHS student body started three years ago.
Students wanted to create a collection of works that were produced in a print
rather than online medium, giving the reader a physical book to view and read.
It prints an annual issue that demonstrates the incredible artistic and
literary talent that our school offers. Every aspect of the work is done by our
students; every submission is created or written by our students, it is edited
by the students, the cover is selected from student submissions and the book is
even assembled by students. It's available to staff, the student body and the
public (if they wish to purchase one) for two dollars. To get your copy,
please see Mr. Biggs or visit the main office at the school.
