The Arrow is produced monthly. New issues for 2012-13 can be purchased through our monthly automatic deduction system found here.

The following Arrows are from previous years and are available as “already published” issues. They’re listed alphabetically by novel. We have also included the literary element which is featured in each particular issue of the Arrow. If you want to know more about what the Arrow is or how it is intended to function in your homeschool, please read more about it here.

“Already Published” issues cost $9.95 each. Already Published Issues are digital products and require a valid email address. They will be delivered to you through a link that enables you to download the issue to your computer. You can then print a copy to keep. Be sure to back up your issues as we don’t send second copies if you accidentally delete them.

Be aware that we have covered many of the literary elements several times over the years and there might be some overlapping material if you purchase two Arrows with the same featured element.
