November 2 to November 4 saw the hosting of the annual meeting of FUSE (Forum for Undergraduate Student Editors) at Cabrini University in Radnor, PA. The theme was “Representation and Resistance,” and Widener student editors from Widener Ink, The Blue Route, and The Blue & Gold were out in force. Nicole Gray, Jasmine Kouyate, Haley Poluchuck, Jennifer Rohrbach, Carlie Sisco, and Kira Smith attended, along with Professors Cocchiarale, Pobo, and Esch, and presented an hour-long workshop entitled “Using Documentary Theater to Craft Monologues of Resistance.”
We’re happy to link out to our fellow blog at The Blue Route to share the amazing comments from the students who went. Representative are these words from Carlie Sisco, Blog Manager/Social Media Manager for The Blue Route:
We are a very tight-knit team at Widener and we’ve gotten to know each other not only as people, but also as writers. It was amazing to hear from the talented students at other universities and colleges who are brave enough to read personal or vulnerable pieces of work to a room filled with strangers that share the same passion…I’ve become so impressed and inspired by those around me. It’s a true testament to why we do what we do. As writers, we aim to inspire, move others, express a given voice, and potentially make a difference with the stories we tell. Listening to the students I’ve gotten to meet and work with over the course of three days, it’s easy to tell that we’re on that path. I’ve never felt such a part of such a talented community.
