100 years ago, the first Spring Magazine was released by Quiz & Quill in 1919. Now, in 2019, we have the great privilege of putting together the 100th issue of this remarkable publication.
This chapbook was inspired by the past 100 years’ worth of amazing writing that has come out of Otterbein students and been published by Quiz & Quill. We browsed archival copies of past magazines to find pieces that are not only great works of writing, but that also offer a glimpse into the time in which they were written.
The pieces in this chapbook span 100 years of history, from World War II to the Civil Rights Movement and beyond. They serve as memorials to specific times and places, yet we hope you’ll be surprised by just how much they still speak to our present-day and resonate with us in the way that only good literature can.
