My grandfather on my mom’s side of the family has a lexicon of cliches — a signature catchphrase, if you will, for almost any situation. “Put an egg in your shoe and beat it” happens to be my favorite, but there’s also one that I’ve only recently gained an appreciation for:

Hot air wafts from the oven in the kitchen of Linder Cooperative House, which looks semi-industrial with steel gray appliances. A hooded stove and two picnic benches tucked under a wooden table back into the far right corner of a chipping, bright orange wall. My Chemical Romance’s “Teenagers” has been playing at full volume, on loop. It’s almost 7 p.m. and the Linder House co-chefs prepare dinner for the co-op’s 20 residents. Recent alum Shannon Stone takes a pair of Speedo goggles dangling from a nail in the wall above us and pulls them over her eyes before continuing with the onions.

Dear reader,
Jane Austen once wrote: “It is a truth universally acknowledged that a single person in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of The Statement’s annual Literary Issue.” Actually, she didn’t. But we think it’s true. In this issue, you’ll find everything from love, sex and science to almonds — yes, almonds.
We hope these poems and short stories open your mind to the creativity and imagination that live on our campus and within our writing.
Welcome to the Literary Issue.
