Let’s fix your fear!

Do you want to help others face their fears and step out of the box for writing benefits? Here is the chance! Mr. Matthew Cepress, an English teacher at D.C. Everest Senior High School is hosting a new event every month called The Fix.

“Students will be in a room full of celebration and empowerment,”  said Mr. Cepress. “The meaning of The Fix means I’m going to get my fix of spoken word. As a student, you get to see your classmates perform. You get the work straight from the source. It’s a chance to fix your work. Its purpose is for the Premiere Night [Point of Convergence].

Premiere Night for Point of Convergence literary magazine is on Thursday, Jan. 18, 2018. This event is in dedication to Creative Writing students whose writing is in the literature magazine. Mr. Cepress said for The Point of Convergence premiere night they regularly have about 150 people attend to this event. He said that The Fix will have a much lighter vibe and students wanted this event to begin.

The Fix is also hosting a holiday meet for the month of December. They are inviting students to wear their Christmas apparel and enjoy some hot chocolate and Christmas cookies. Anyone is encouraged to bring in Christmas food and drinks.

“The benefit of going is to improve my writing and others’ writing,” said Rachel Sankey, Senior.

This event allows students to explore their creativity freely by presenting pieces from their favorite books or their own work.

“I felt exhilarated and happy that I performed. I got the opportunity to do something I’ve never done before and im over all proud of myself,” said Rebeka Wesenick, Junior. “It helped overcome my social anxiety, I found it very beneficial.”

Students can also sit back and listen to support their classmates, who perform in room 310 at 3:10pm.

The Fix will meet once a month for about an hour. Any student, 8th grade through 12th grade, is eligible to attend. Teachers and adults are encouraged to attend as well.

  Mr. Cepress hopes students bring cash! Point of Convergence merchandise, books and t-shirts will be available for purchase.

If you are interested in attending The Fix, a sign up will be available in room 311 for the meet of December.
