The Hidden Edge - Created for teens by teens to support their literary, artistic, cultural and creative journey. Your Place. Your Expression. Your Excellence.

The Topeka and Shawnee County Public Library. Your Place. Stories you want. Information you need. Connections you seek.


Centuries ago, when men had a more imminent view of death, authors such as John Donne and Percy Bysshe Shelley tried to vanquish their mortality through writing. Here young Topekan authors have created a collection of their own epitaphs to remain eternal in the minds of other young readers. A compilation of poems, artwork, and photographs are captured here in this magazine put together by young adults from the areas surrounding the Topeka Shawnee County Public Library . This group of teens was inspired to create a voice for themselves and especially other Topeka writers. Sarah Langley


“There is no agony like bearing an untold story inside you.” - Zora Neale Hurston I first conceived of this magazine over a year ago, and though we suffered some false starts , I’m proud that we are able to present the first edition of the Topeka and Shawnee County Library’s teen literary magazine The Hidden Edge.. Within is a sample of the voices and visions of our local teens. This is a place where teens can tell their stories, share their emotions and grow through their artistic journeys. I thank them for their courage in sharing their creations. You may recognize some of the contributors in this anthology. Would you like your name to be recognized?
