Over the past three decades, UMBC’s creative arts journal Bartleby has served as a valuable platform for UMBC students to reconcile themselves with their experiences and share them with the community. Bartleby is an important archive of UMBC student voices and identities, allowing authors and artists to find validation in a publicized format. On a campus with a strong STEM focus, our journal contends that creative expression is a legitimate and necessary form of scholarship relevant to all disciplines. Bartleby will present a short film exploring the motivations of authors and artists who submit to the journal in producing their creative works, as well as the choices made by Bartleby staff to curate the journal. The film will exhibit texts in a collage format to trace the development of a creative work from its inspiration to fulfillment, including sketches, manuscripts and narration of written works. Bartleby staff members will address the aspects which make a work effective and relevant, examining the common incentives for creative expression. Through the presentation of both author and editor perspectives, the film will analyze those aspects which continue to distinguish the journal as a valuable resource for the UMBC community.
