The Pluralist Anthology

​​Welcome to The Pluralist!​ 

The Pluralist writing and arts anthology is a flagship publication of the GECDSB.  The anthology was first published in 1989 in the Essex County Board of Education. Publication continued after amalgamation with the Windsor Board of Education in 1999. The poetry, prose and art work are generated by students from public secondary schools in the GECDSB. The first purpose of the Pluralist is to reflect our students’ diverse abilities, thoughts and experiences. Secondly, it is a homegrown resource giving teachers exemplars they can use in their classes as they work through the writing and illustrating processes. A third intent is to encourage student and teacher involvement in authentic publishing experiences beyond the walls of our schools. You will undoubtedly marvel at the added dimension provided by the talented visual art students who may have never met the authors of the pieces which they have illustrated.
