670 Ft., Valerie Brewer Feb 2018

670 Ft., Valerie Brewer

Papers & Publications: Interdisciplinary Journal of Undergraduate Research

A short story that explores the inner turmoil of man named Archie, whose life hangs in the balance as he contemplates whether or not he should take the plunge off the edge of a metal beam 670 ft. in the air. What originally began as a quiet lunch between four men had somehow become a fatal nightmare. While he watched as the crowd gathered below, listening to the pleas of his coworkers beside him, Archie couldn't help but remember every little thing he had let build up inside, until it all came spilling out as soon as the words ...

Frida's Daughter, Myrta Vida Apr 2017

Frida's Daughter, Myrta Vida

Theses

The purpose of my creative writing is to highlight a group of U.S. citizens still woefully underrepresented in literature proper: the Latinx middle class. I’m keenly interested in exploring Puerto Rican and first- and second-generation Latinx immigrant stories. Even though some of the experiences from these groups have been elegantly visited by writers such as Giannina Braschi, Sandra Cisneros, Junot Diaz, Julia Alvarez, and others, there are nuances to the Latinx middle class experience that are yet to be uncovered. Being stuck in the cultural, linguistic, socio-economic, and political middles in a country that has recently taken a ...


Dreams And Reality: A Storyteller's Look At Life, Sara K. Bennett Jan 2017

Dreams And Reality: A Storyteller's Look At Life, Sara K. Bennett

Creative Writing Minor Portfolios

These pages tour the wanderings of a storyteller's mind and snippets of life in the forms of non-fiction, fiction, and poetry, though not always in that particular order. The topically arranged pieces first delve into the meaning of being a storyteller. This involves having half of one's mind in another place and putting on the mantles of different characters. After finishing with the theme, the collection turns to fiction with a selection of stories and poems. Turning from fiction, the collection touches upon real life pain, struggles, grief, and growing. Each provides snippets of life adding a backdrop ...


Bad Things To Good People: Stories, Christopher Ryne Brewer Jan 2017

Bad Things To Good People: Stories, Christopher Ryne Brewer

Theses, Dissertations and Capstones

Bad Things to Good People: Stories is a brief collection of five fictional short stories. As the collection’s title, which also serves as a bookending table of contents, indicates, these stories focus on the wide-ranging idea of bad things happening to good people. Written mostly in the literary style of minimalism, these stories explore various themes which circulate around topics such as: relationships, both familial and romantic, grieving losses, and a basic human need to make meaning of the sometimes-troubling events in one’s life. In the introduction to this collection, the stories offered here are compared alongside the ...
