Letter from the Editors

Dear Reader,

Thank you so much for taking the time to look at Discourse.  As a new magazine, we know we have a long way to go to establish ourselves in this community, and the most important step is your readership.  We are committed to creating this artistic space for people to express themselves and celebrate each other.  It’s time that CMC cultivates its artistic community, and makes a designated space for celebrating creativity on campus. In 2013, the CWPD launched slam poetry events and write-ins to provide more creative platforms on campus. The insight the students presented at each event inspired us. We wanted to create a space to highlight these voices. Discourse Mag is the tangible product of this vision. We are endlessly thankful for all of you who create and appreciate art, as well as for the CWPD for making this venture possible.  We hope you enjoy the first ever edition of Discourse!
