Howl, founded in 2013, is an online literary arts magazine run and operated by dedicated, passionate, and talented students of Deltona High School under the supervision and support of Dylan Emerick-Brown. Howl is dedicated to fostering newer generations of professional writers, editors, publishers, and graphic designers through hands-on experience and assistance from real publishers, editors, and writers at the top of their respective fields. We also have a passion for making a difference in our community and beyond through fundraising for Florida elementary and middle schools for their literary endeavors, putting together writing workshops, creating scholarships, organizing events, and more. Our editors/students have interviewed Pulitzer Prize winners, Poet Laureates, Nobel Laureates, acclaimed authors, and others involved in various aspects of the literary arts.
