Soundings/QED

This year, the literary magazine Soundings is celebrating its 75th year of publication as one of the longest running clubs here at Staples! In celebration, the staff of the literary magazines have been working hard not only on our annual volume, but also on a special, celebratory publication. 

We are pleased to share the 75th Volume of Soundings and QED, as well as a 75th Special Anniversary Magazine (PDFs attached below), featuring selections pulled from each year of the Soundings publication, from 1947 until today!

Additionally, the club was awarded a mini-Wrecker grant through the PTA to digitize our archives, so for the first time, we are able to share every published copy of Soundings with the public from our history at Staples! You can find each archived volume on our new and improved website
