An Alternate Route, Rachael D. Tague

Creative Writing Minor Portfolios

An Alternate Route is a collection of short fiction and creative nonfiction from my undergraduate creative writing minor at Cedarville University. It explores stories I have heard, experienced, and imagined—stories worth remembering. “My Boyfriend’s Estranged Grandfather” was published in Cleaver Magazine, and “Rick’s Café: Negril, Jamaica” appeared in The MacGuffin.

Creative Writing Minor Portfolios

This portfolio is a collection of some of my poetry and creative nonfiction pieces, all of which I wrote during my time as an undergraduate at Cedarville University. A few of the pieces in this collection have appeared previously in other publications. Literary Yard featured my nonfiction piece “Four Passages” on their website in November of 2014. Blotterature Literary Magazine published my nonfiction piece “This Is More Than Homesickness” in Volume 2, Issue 1, of their Winter 2015 publication. Burning Word Literary Journal published my nonfiction piece “Sun Fungus” in May of 2015. Magnolia Review featured my nonfiction piece “Nine ...

Around An Image, Alexander Macphail-Fausey

Creative Writing Minor Portfolios

This is a collection of poetry and creative nonfiction from the four years I attended Cedarville. Each of the pieces originated from a specific image and allowed that image to shape the rest of the work. I use the concrete images to engage complicated ideas or situations I have experienced. I use the writing in this collection to better understand the things I have experienced. The nonfiction shorts “Scar Tissue,” “Sunday 26 January 2014,” and “Malibu Beach: Camp Lot 29” have all been published in the Marco Polo Arts Magazine.

There Is An Unformed World In The Sky Of My Heart, Nathanael T. Spanos

Creative Writing Minor Portfolios

“There is an Unformed World in the Sky of My Heart” contains works of poetry, fiction, and non-fiction. All the pieces were written after my conversion to Christ in December 2012 and before my graduation from Cedarville University in May 2015. Though my spiritually-themed poems are the pulse of this portfolio, the title refers to the fantasy world of Sembercron, which I am discovering and creating through my writing. The title also refers to heaven growing in my heart, or Christ’s image supplanting my own, or God sanctifying me for his purposes. This portfolio observes, explores, and delights in ...


This Level Of Living, Rose Havard Nov 2013

This Level Of Living, Rose Havard

Creative Writing Minor Portfolios

This portfolio contains poetry, nonfiction, and one short fiction story. Two nonfiction pieces appearing here, “Welcome to the Armory” and “Survey: Headphones” have also been published in the online journal Prick of the Spindle. All pieces were written between August of 2012 and May 2013. I consider this collection the best of my college writing.

I pay extra attention to sounds in my pieces. I also try to achieve a certain level of ostranenie—a poetry term that means “making the familiar strange”—because I am fascinated with the attempt. This Level of Living refers to a state of high ...
