Wilder Voice: Building An Institution

Creativity Fund, Winter 2007-08

Project Description

Ignition Fund, 2008

About The Project

Wilder Voice is a bi-annual student magazine devoted to long-form journalism and creative nonfiction. The magazine is unique in providing a forum for in-depth articles on culture, politics, travel, and issues at Oberlin, while fostering a closer relationship between editor and writer through a multiple-draft process over the course of a semester. As we enter our fourth year in print, we believe that we can transform Wilder Voice into a sustainable institution at Oberlin. In pursuit of this goal, we will double the number of print copies of our Fall 2008 issue, start a subscription program, and launch our website.
