Notes From Crew Quarters: Writing as Music
This week, Ethan Brightbill asked our staff what their writing would be if it was a genre of music.
Willow Grosz, Managing Editor
Nostalgic 90s alt-rock. Think tragic hearts in tragic blenders...
Jackson Keller, Associate Fiction Editor
Overdramatic anime theme song!
Hayli Cox Associate Nonfiction Editor
Instrumenals, maybe Penguin Cafe Orchestra.
Jacqueline Boucher, Managing Editor
Scary orchestral music, but like, with a really sick beat?
Ashley Adams Associate Nonfiction Editor Emeritus
Melancholic prog metal.
Ethan Brightbill Associate Editor, Fiction Allentown, Pennsylvania
Something like Massive Attack–eclectic, but frequently dark and atmospheric and recognizable as coming from one source despite all the variance.
E. Flores Associate Poetry Editor
Downbeat symphonic polka. Think just because.
