Write and Forge - What is it? -History
Write and Forge is a student run publication featuring stories and artwork made by the students of Exceptional Minds.
The magazine began in 2017 with the talented individuals of Xavier Romo, Quinn Wright, Peter Jansen, Jake Reiss, Isaiah Strum, and Thomas Harmonson. The magazine was originally supervised by Kristin Kucia who guided these talented young minds.
The magazine has evolved to allow for new editors and supervisors. Tim Dailey joined as co-supervisor Fall of 2019 to handle the magazine's evolving technical and expanded article review needs.
Today the team consists of a variety of students from our various classes.
Exceptional Minds is a vocational school for young adults on the autism spectrum. Students learn the fundamentals of the visual effects industry as well as further their own artistic skills.
Write and Forge came out of the idea that while Exceptional Minds is mostly a school for the arts, a lot of its students like to write, but had nowhere to share their writings. These range from movie reviews, news about the school, personal stories, and much more. Image of the original team below and the first issue's logo design:
