Ewa, Shannen, Courtney, Devin, and Jackie before today’s meeting! 

We’re making our way to a second issue!

Yesterday’s meeting

Last night, the editors at Solidus, met and discussed whether or not we should accept submissions to the literary magazine from people who are not Colby-Sawyer students or locals of the New London, New Hampshire area.

For now, we have decided, we are not going to accept submissions from people who are not CSC students or locals. Yet, it was brought up that maybe in future editions we will open up the admission guidelines so that people nationwide can submit to this wonderful publication. 

What are some of your opinions? Tell us here

Name: Courtney Pike 
Status: Senior 
Major: Public Health 
What I like to write: I like creative writing and I enjoy writing poetry as well as writing songs. 
Favorite color: Red
What I think poetry is about: I feel poetry is about being honest and true and putting some of your deepest thoughts on paper. I feel some of the words you cannot say, can be written. 
Where I find my inspiration: I find my inspiration just by simply taking in my surroundings from day to day. Whether it be a walk around campus, or spending time with my friends and family, the inspiration I receive comes from the people and places I surround myself with.

Lady Shockbox is just her pen name. Her real name is Meghan Burrows, and she first started telling stories when she was in first grade. This happened shortly after she had a nightmare with an ending that didn’t satisfy her, so after retelling her revamped version of her dream to her friends over and over again, she got the wild notion that storytelling was fun. It wasn’t until she finally learned how to write that everything went sort of went downhill. What started out as a dumb little hobby exploded into an obsession. Cut ahead twelve years later, Meghan has written dozens of short stories, a novella, and even somehow managed to wedge a full blown novel into the mix, too. Publication is pending, but she’s getting there.

 
Meghan is currently a freshman and aspiring creative writing major attending Colby-Sawyer College. Her preferred genres of choice are horror, fantasy, sci-fi, and full blown angst. A little romance and drama here and there is okay, but too much of it is painful for her to read, especially if it’s mindless sap and just plain written badly. On a less related note, her favorite color is rainbows, her car is secretly a giant alien robot with a temper, and she has a deep love and fondness for all things related to guinea pigs, zombies, robots, video games, and creepypasta. She is also an enthusiastic video editor who frequents YouTube, as well as lurks around on the internet trolling for kicks.
