Darcy Cosper will return to the Upper School English department as a full-time teacher this year after previously filling in as a substitute last semester for Maura Roosevelt. Cosper has also substituted for English teachers Eric Schrode in 2008 and Laurence Weber in 2010.

Over the summer, Cosper started an online literary magazine called the Offing, which publishes creative writing that belongs to a variety of genres ranging from poetry to nonfiction.

According to the Offing’s website, the magazine is “a place for new and emerging writers to test their voices, and for established writers to test their limits”.

Prior to assuming the position of Editor-in-Chief of the Offing, Cosper was the online editor of another literary magazine called the Swink from 2004 to 2012.

However, Cosper said she wanted to return to Harvard-Westlake because of “the exceptional students and faculty.”

She said she is looking forward to getting to know new students in her sophomore English classes.
