"What does it mean to write in the pulse?"

A Letter from the Editor-In-Chief: Avi

Thank you for your interest in OCAD University’s PULSE Literary Journal. My name is Avishai Sol and I have the honour of being Editor in Chief for the 2nd issue of Pulse. This publication process took a lot of strategy, strength, and skill to complete, but in that process the team bound together to create something we are truly proud of. Personally, I am in awe of the incredible talent both the editorial board and the contributors displayed.

This website is meant to serve as an archive for PULSE throughout the years and editions. It is a celebration of the Creative Writing program and all within it. Students creating a space for student work in an audio-feedback loop of dedication and artistic skill. For some of the contributors this may be the first time seeing their work in print, but that is the beauty of a student publication. It is a snapshot, a moment, a version of yourself. This work is a microcosm of our creative writing community and by reading it you too experience the chaos, passion, and ultimately the beauty that is the Creative Writing program at OCAD University.
