Polyphony H.S. is a student-run national literary magazine for high-school writers. The title is a combination of the Greek term meaning many voices, and the abbreviation for High School.
Polyphony H.S. was co-founded by Paige Holtzman (Latin School of Chicago ’06) and Billy Lombardo in August 2004. At that time, there was no other magazine like it in the country; that is, a professional quality, national literary magazine for high school writers, edited by high school students from public, private, and parochial schools; and there is still nothing like it in the world. Not only do the editors invite high school writers to submit their work for professional publication, but they also give editorial feedback to every author who submits a manuscript. This extends to continuing a dialogue with accepted authors in an effort to strengthen each piece.
When the first edition was published in the spring of 2005, they had received 156 submissions from 361 schools across the country and 23 published pieces. Submissions have grown steadily. In 2009 they received nearly a thousand submissions and published just 51 pieces. Submissions come from nearly all fifty states and and ten foreign countries, including Canada, the Czech Republic, England, Kenya, Pakistan, Russia, and South Korea.
