Nobody Can Tell Your Story Like You!
Providing the depth and detail needed to truly highlight the complex nature of the personal and professional achievement of UM-Flint students, faculty, staff, alumni, and others is the chief aim of Pillars. However, we also intend it to be a platform where individuals can tell their own story, in their own words—or their own pictures, poetry, videos, all of the above.
We want Pillars to reflect and provoke the rich discussion and meaningful action that are at the heart of life and learning at UM-Flint. So send us your brainstorms of stories to tell, people to profile, ideas to champion, and actions to take. We also want your words (research results, short fiction, travel diaries, poetry, essays, etc.), photography, videography, artwork, doodles, and surprises!
There are no guidelines as far as word count, subject matter, or style. If it doesn't seem like a natural fit for the webzine format, send it anyway. Maybe we'll invent an all-new genre (e-needlepoint, anyone?)! If it is interesting, engaging, and indicative of the best this campus has to offer, we want to see it.
For additional ideas and inspiration, please review the following major themes Pillars will aspire to feature:
