The Inkblot Spring 2017, Issue 3: Mirrors
The Inkblot Spring 2017. The topic for issue 3 was mirrors and the Creative Writing II students composed all of their pieces around this. The Editorial Board for this issue was Geonna Smith, Peter Redmond, Michelle Court, Isabella Morse, and David Wu. Together they worked to ensure the quality of the issue and each production. Here are some comments from the members of the Board.
I hope that this issue will bring a reflective feel to it. Emotionally and physically. Everyone has brought something different to the table, which really increases our selection. Writers have brought dramatic pieces, horror pieces, psychological pieces, etc. The whole 9 yards to bring a diverse set of auras to the class. -Geonna Smith
This issue will be difficult. I want to embody mirrors in both a creepy and a non-creepy way. I feel like the pieces which we picked to be produced do a good job of expressing some of the feelings and emotions associated with mirrors. To be honest, I wasn’t really much of a fan of this topic when we picked it but I like it a little bit more now than I originally did. -Peter Redmond
My hope for this issue would be for the variety of subjects to be focused on mirrors. I would like to have a great variation of “Mirrors” and how they can be interpreted in anyway. The goal of these pieces could be light hearted, intellectual, or even emotional. -Michelle Court
My hope at the start of the issue was that the topic of “Mirrors” would allow writers explore the idea of reflection in many levels of depth. The variety of genres and themes that resulted exceeded expectations, and central topic is elegantly evident throughout all writers’ works. -Isabella Morse
The theme of “Mirrors” is one that appears to be pretty linear at first, but after taking a deeper look, there are many layers to this theme. I hoped that writers would get creative with the theme and give mirrors justice in their pieces, and expectations were exceeded. I am sure you will enjoy reading this issue as much as I did. -David Wu
