Over the course of the last couple of weeks, Wayland High School language students took the AAPPL test. If they scored above a certain standard, they were awarded the Massachusetts Seal of Biliteracy. “I chose to take the AAPPL because I know some of my colleges will take the Seal as language credit,” senior Ciaran Murphy said.

In the ninth edition of WSPN goes clubbing, WSPN’s Annika Martins and Jenny Shine interview Open Mic club leader Kanmani Sekhar.

What is Open Mic Club?

“[Open Mic] is a club where people can get together and create their own pieces of writing,” Sekhar said. “On the weekends or anytime there are open mics in the area, we go together and perform.”

How did this club begin?

“I was looking into spoken word poetry before, and then I just thought, ‘Why not do it with other people like my friends?’” Sekhar said. “And then I was like, ‘Why not just make it a [school] club?’”

Why should someone join the club?

“[Join the club] if you like creative writing, want to work on public speaking or you fit into any of those two categories,” Sekhar said.

What are meetings like and how often are they?

“I haven’t had any [meetings] yet, but hopefully [meetings] will be really casual,” Sekhar said. “We will be bouncing off ideas and free writing.”

What is one goal that you have for the club this year?

“Our goal is [to have] at least more than 10 outings and try to do as many as possible,” Sekhar said.
