About / Submit

Newark Academy’s Writing, Art & Music blog, affectionately known as WAM!, is a place for students, alumni, teachers, staff and visiting artists to share creative work  with the goal of encouraging artistic pursuits, large and small. We feature poetry, fiction, nonfiction, visual art, photography, video, music, theater, dance, and more. This year’s intrepid WAM! interns are Stella Gilbert ’22, Albert Zhou ’22, Navyaa Jain ’23, and Izzy Becker ’24. Silvy Zhou ’21 designed the blog’s logo and banner. WAM! is currently managed by Flannery James.

These 10-minute montages offer a glimpse of some of the hundreds of posts shared to date. Submit your own creative endeavors to wam@newarka.edu.  Contribute! Comment! Enjoy!
