For those of you who may be wondering what my real name is, there is now a venue for you to access this information.
The Inkwell Literary Magazine, Fairfield University’s Creative Writing Club, has officially taken over my life even more so than the Glee Club in recent weeks and here is why.
Two years ago when I started college the club used to be named The Cream Filling. Don’t ask, it was stupid. While fun and a great atmosphere to meet friends and write, it was honestly extremely unproductive. Nothing ever got printed or even put online. So, sophomore year G and I took over and have hence pulled it to its feet. (Side note, this is the SECOND literary magazine for which I and best friends have done wonders.)
Through begging, threats and tears, we have collected writing from students around campus and have compiled them into a literary magazine! The remaining printed copies are taking up all available space on my desk awaiting distribution around campus. It can also be read online here!! For those of you who have been paying attention to my writing you will notice some familiar pieces and hence figure out which of the two of the editors-in-chief is Aspiring Novelist!
Anyway, that and final papers are the reason why I have not been writing any of my novels at the moment, however, I am not too depressed because technically it falls under the category of creative writing/a future job. G and I are seriously thinking of creating our own magazine when we graduate as a way of raking in a little extra cash on the side and showcasing the talents of writers across the state/country/globe (we’re trying not to get too ahead of ourselves though!)
That is where I stand. Please let me know what you think of the magazine! So far only our best friends have been responding to us and I would love to hear the opinions of people I trust to tell me the truth and know what they are talking about in the field of literature. Since this is the first project The Inkwell has tackled, there has not been any precedent or feedback from past publications to give us an idea as to how we should do things. Ideas, comments and suggestions will be heartily accepted on either blog! We will seriously take anything constructive into consideration to create bigger and better future publications.
Thank you, friends!
