Hallie Zenga-Josephson

I’m Hallie Zenga-Josephson. I joined Lit Mag because I love to write. I like how you can write about things that could never happen in real life, but it’s real in your book. I’m 15 and go to Newton North High School. This is my 6th year at CAAP. I am excited for you to read some of my stories!


Anavi Eagar

My name is Anavi Eagar and I am 13, and go to Brown Middle School. I Love horseback riding and rowing , and I hate chickens and airplanes. I write to share feelings, stories, and situations that don’t get addressed every day.

Anna Rahilly

My name is Anna Rahilly, and I’m fifteen years old. This is my second summer here at CAAP. I’m from Newton, and I go to Newton North High School. In addition to school, I swim competitively for my school team and two other teams. In my free time, I love spending time with friends and family, being outside, going to the beach, reading in my hammock or on my deck, and writing. I like to write because it’s a chance to escape from everyday life and immerse yourself in another character’s world. I also enjoy the aspect of having control over the story and letting it take twists and turns. I also love reading and letting my family and friends check out my work!
