Dear eager readers,
This is it, MUSE is out.
Forget about your deadlines, treat yourself and grab your blanket and cup of hot chocolate and marshmallows because MUSE is ending 2020 with a BANG!
This year did not at all dampen the creativity of the beautiful minds of the English Department; our contributors were as inspired as ever.
This issue will shake you, it will scare you, it will make you uncomfortable, it will make you drool, it will make you feel warm inside. Ranging from productions fresh out of the Creative Writing Club, to prose, poetry, recipes, critical pieces, interviews, we have got it all.
Make avocado toast with a twist while you enjoy reading about our beloved Juliette Vuille and Andrew Reilly who have kindly sat down with us this semester and who gave us an insight into their lives. A big thanks to them!
Eat chocorange cake while you try to find out which staff member you are most like, or drool over the juicy Zoom confessions we have compiled for you this semester. We thank everyone who has shared their experience with us!
