The Azure: May 2021

What is The Azure?

The Azure is Acalanes High School Blueprint’s literary magazine. We partner with Lafayette Partners in Education (LPIE) to publish the winners of Project LPIE, and we accept submissions directly from the Acalanes student body to create this publication. This year, Managing Editor and junior Ella Alpert and former Liason Editor and senior Leda Abkenari spearheaded the project.

Copies of the print edition of The Azure are available at Acalanes for 10 dollars starting Monday, May 24. All proceeds will go to COVID-19 relief in India.
