The MFHS Thassophobia Club is looking to begin again as a club that reads and publishes student work. Club members have decided to focus on the famed talent show, but also want to expand the reach of the club back into the classroom. English teachers have been contacted and announcements will be made about getting more student content turned in so that we can publish it to the creative writing section of this webpage.
In recent years, the club has seen a steady decline in participation by the student body. At the same time, talent show participation has gone up. The club operates year-round, and the benefit it provides to the school can be realized weekly with more student submissions. To that end, Mr. Jaeger will be offering Golla Dollas for your writing. Bring your poetry or prose to Room 144 to receive cold, hard cash.
