Guest Curator: Dr. Brian Clements, Professor of Writing, Linguistics, and Creative Process at Western CT State University

“Broadsides are the most legitimate representatives of the most ephemeral literature, the least likely to escape destruction, and yet they are the most vivid exhibitors of the manners, arts, and daily life, of communities and nations. They imply a vast deal more than they literally express, and disclose visions of interior conditions of society, such as cannot be found in formal narratives.”  -Samuel F Haven

FEATURED WRITERS:

Finding the Right Path

Writer, Melissa Johnson, New London

Melissa Johnson is a native of Springfield, Mass., and East Haddam, Conn. She has a BFA in English from the University of Connecticut and is currently pursuing an MFA in writing from Western Connecticut State University. Her interests include astronomy, astrophotography, Europe, genealogy, and her nieces, Molly and Nora. She is a breast cancer survivor. Her work has appeared in the Long River ReviewThe Dayélan magazine, Grace magazine, and several other publications along the Connecticut shoreline. She lives in New London with her husband, Travis.

Found the D

Writer, Emily Carney, Danbury

Emily Carney's work has appeared in Poetry, Rookie Mag, and Leste, among others. She is currently working towards her MFA in poetry and teaching writing at Western Connecticut State University.

Untitled

Writer, Steph Myers, Brookfield

Steph Myers lives in Brookfield, CT with her family and her three cats. She recently earned her MFA in Creative and Professional Writing from Western Connecticut State University. Steph was the managing editor of Western’s undergraduate newspaper, The Echo, as well as Western’s undergraduate literary journal, Black & White. She was published several times in both. She currently serves as the blog editor for the MFA program’s literary journal, Poor Yorick and has worked as a Graduate Assistant at Western for the last two years. She is a feminist and hopes to use her writing as a platform to empower women of all ages, but particularly teenage girls.

Her Own Protection

Writer, Samantha A. Garcia, Monroe

When I was 6, I decided to pick up a pencil and an unused school notebook so I could create a new ending to one of my favorite television shows. I hardly remember what spurred me to pick up paper, but I figured, hey, someone has to create these stories, why can’t I?  Now at the age of 21, I’ve continued to pour my creativity into writing, allowing me to excel in both professional and creative courses at Western Connecticut State University. My interest has oriented itself in poetry, editing, and character studies, and with the right amount of effort, I hope to one day publish my first novel.

The New Day

Writer, Emily Chauvin, New Milford

Emily Chauvin attends Western Connecticut State University for Creative Writing and Philosophy, which she firmly believes somehow add up to a future as a sculptor, punk star, and/or religious guru. Her flash-bang poetry walks around a subject and says ‘Hello!’ The crowd goes wild. A family of women and a house of antiques gave this New Englander her special love of small-world moments, lost objects, found objects, and coincidences. In her free time, she is found enjoying concerts up and down the coast, either flailing in the crowd or chasing down unregistered voters by volunteering with Headcount. Be it writing, tree-hugging, hot-gluing, singing, dancing or participating in local activism, Emily can’t stop moving to the groove of one billion beautiful people.
