‘In Other Words’ Writing Submissions Due March 8

Celebrating Student Writing

In Other Words is a wonderful, campus-wide event that highlights text-based work from students across all majors.

Every year, we proudly showcase writing that takes many forms: sketchbooks/process books, poetry, song lyrics, fiction, essays, manifestos, plays, monologues, screenplays, academic papers, and visual art that includes text.

In April 2022, there will be an exhibition, celebration with performances, and an ebook. This year will be extra special because we’ll be able to have an in-person gathering!

Please submit your writing or text-based art via this form!

The display case outside of the library shows visual and text-based works from last year’s exhibition, including Artist’s Books, graphic novels, illustrated notes from classes, and text-based art. Notice the scripts and thesis papers hanging to the right of the display case! Feel free to submit large – or short – pieces of writing. Feel free to submit “academic” essays or research projects you crafted for a class. Or creative pieces you’re experimenting with in your own time. Artists write in so many ways and all writing is welcome!

Alongside the many text-only pieces (short stories, lyrics, poems, academic essays, etc.) from last year, there were some highly visual works that included text: Here are just two of the amazing submissions: Above: “You’re my favorite book” by Olivia Dorrance (Art), an introduction to their Artist’s Book titled Not What You Want But What You Need. Below: “The Saguaro Cactus” by Bailee Lee (Design), a comic made for their Autobiographical Comics class.

“In Other Words” is organized by Cornish’s Writing Across the Curriculum (WAC) committee, which seeks to amplify the varied, expressive, tender, exploratory, expository, and powerful writing that our students create. Send us your words!

Any questions? Gayle Clemans, WAC’s Interim Chair, would be happy to answer them!
