We are excited to present Part II of this year’s Kids Issues — Xpress’ annual extravaganza celebrating the art and writing of our area’s K-12 students. This year, kids and teens sprang into action to respond to the 2019 theme, “24-hour superpowers.”

Students dreamed big, imagining superheroes who tackle climate change and social issues, help others, spread love, kindness and understanding, and even have a little fun. With more than 470 submissions of art, poetry, essays and short fiction, our main regret is that we couldn’t include even more of the worthy entries we received.

Pick up a print copy to see all the student work at once — plus our extensive summer camp listings and other kid-focused content — or view the online issue archive.

We are delighted to get a glimpse into the creative young minds of Western North Carolina — and we think you will be, too.
