About Quilt

OUR STORY

We aim to interweave student voices and reconcile the divide between the creative and the scholarly

Founded by the 2020-2021 Queen’s English Department Student Council, Quilt aims to feature the best and most thought provoking academic and creative work that the school has to offer. With a passion for studying literature both academically and creatively, Daniel Green, Larissa Zhong, and Kelsey Watt were keen on creating a space where the intersection between formality and imagination could exist.

 

Quilt, the publication’s title, is derived from our aim to interweave student voices at Queen’s University and reconcile the divide between scholarly and creative work. We strive to create a new opportunity for students to see their hard work published and read, and in turn elevate the prestige of Queen’s English. Quilt is an opportunity for students to share work that they are proud of.
