Editor’S Note, Trent Hergenrader

Journal of Creative Writing Studies

One of the primary goals of the field of creative writing studies is to examine creative writing lore. Lore is anecdotal knowledge, often passed down through generations as informal advice and traditional knowledge that is often framed as appealing to our common sense. Lore is not necessarily wrong or bad; indeed, it usually has more than a grain of truth to it, which is why it survives and continues to be shared, like a folk remedy for the common cold.

Strange Woods, Song Park 2018 Washington University in St. Louis

Strange Woods, Song Park

Graduate School of Art Theses

It has been frustrating for me to create images of women, and I have experienced a deep ambivalence in response to the different images of women I have encountered. The socially and culturally constructed images of women that I have internalized and those that have developed from my own ...

Dhal Bhat And My Dad’S Pizza: Comfort And Steep Learning Curves In Nepal, Elsa Froelicher

Honors Theses AY 17/18

Food is central to our lives. We cannot live without it; our bodies need it to function. But food has more meaning than energy to move our muscles, to help us think, or give us vital vitamins and minerals. We relate food to experiences. Traveling to new places almost always involves trying local cuisine or local specialties. We find comfort in food; in greasy, cheesy, gooey, delicious foods. We eat to deal with stress, to celebrate joy, to mourn losses. Holidays are almost always associated with foods. Food is not just a physical need, but also an emotional and psychological ...
