Telling meaningful stories with mundane objects

Communication students at Berry share their very private stories written with one everyday object in mind

What began as a routine class writing assignment slowly developed into a collection of poignant, intimate, very personal stories. A dozen or so Berry students taking the Communication course Editing collaborated to write, edit and now publish this collection, which is themed on or around everyday objects. A wooden boat, a Chinese wristwatch, a small porcelain piggybank – objects like these are used as lenses through which to tell some larger story.

After reading and re-reading these stories, it seemed silly to let them languish in the professor’s office. These are stories the Berry community just might like. Certainly readers can get to know these Berry students in a most personal way. Enjoy!
