A Word from Our Editors
As Clamor, we encourage public expression within our art and writing community. Clamor also provides an atmosphere of cooperation, collaboration, self-awareness, self-care, and community support. As editors of this year’s journal, we experienced many challenges planning and executing our showcase of creative talents from our UWB community, including supply chain shortages and subsequent rising costs since the pandemic. Fortunately, we were able to meet these challenges with an ethos of collaboration and care.
The beauty of art is its ability to not only encourage self-discovery but also to help establish community and insight within the world around us. For the past fourteen years, we strove to exemplify these truths and continue to do so. Our platform provides a space of free expression for creators of every medium to foster a community built upon inclusion, diversity, and inspiration. We truly hope this year’s Clamor issue will inspire you, as it has inspired us. As always, we look forward to giving you an unforgettable experience.
None of this would have been possible without our stellar faculty advisors, Ching-In Chen and Scott Bentley. Many thanks to our peer facilitator, Madison Nikfard, and our program manager, Pauline Tolentino. We express our gratitude to everyone who submitted this year as well as everyone who continues to support us. Thank you all for being part of the Clamor family. We enjoyed every fun, crazy, and chaotic minute of our time together!
