Fall 2008 Cover

On a recent jaunt through our archives, I learned that without our noticing Inscape recently passed its 25th anniversary. Some very talented writers have been published in the past two-and-a-half decades, including a few writers who have returned to BYU to teach. Inscape is proud of remaining a quality a quality venue for student-produced writing and hope that this tradition will carry on. We’d like to thank this semester’s staff for all of their fine work as well as our faculty advisor Patrick Madden for his keen eye and pertinent Rush allusions. Also, thanks go to the visiting writers of the English Department Reading Series who provided the quotes you see before every image. Finally, Inscape would not be possible without our writers, whom we thank for allowing us to publish their work.
