We seek to publish original poetry, short stories, essays, photography and art by the Regina Dominican High School community.
Our theme for this school year is entitled "Back in Action." Kaleidoscope had its beginnings in Regina's Creative Writing class. Although the magazine has been in hiatus for many years, we are proud to bring back this wonderful annual creative writing and arts magazine.
