The Edge

The EDGE is a student run publication that lives online. It is meant to a be a way for the student body to express themselves, practice their skills in whatever form of writing they choose and as a representation of the diversity and varied interests of students attending WIU-QC. We are always looking for more pieces and writers. Just some of the categories represented are:

  • Creative Writing
  • Poetry
  • Opinion Articles
  • News Articles
  • Student Organization Press Release
  • Professor/Student Profile

We welcome all submissions, even if they do not fit a particular category as creativity doesn’t need labels!
