The Azure: May 2022

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 senior Ella Alpert and Print Arts Editor and junior Juliana Upp spearheaded the project.

Copies of the print edition of The Azure are available at Acalanes for free starting Wednesday, May 18.
