ISSUE 0n-8: Fall Folio from New Writers
Edited & Curated by Fall 2019 Staff
Introduction from Prof. Akilah Brown: In Spring 2019, for their final research project, my students were asked to take one of the novels they had read earlier in the semester and to adapt the novel into a different medium. Students created everything from short radio plays to paintings to cupcakes. I was both inspired by and in awe of their creativity, and I hope you enjoy experiencing the work they created.
