The pieces appearing in Inclinations are written by students from various faculties (the winner of last year’s Short Short Story Competition was BSc student Stefan D Valentin). Poetry and prose have been the main sections in the literary magazine, but Paulet was determined to include art in the 2014 first semester edition.
Last semester, the Inklings held a “Design the Cover” competition which was won by Benjamin Jooste, an information design student. Other artworks feature in the magazine and Paulet hopes that there will be more art to showcase in this semester’s volume. The artworks don’t necessarily complement the poems and stories next to which they appear – they tell their own stories.
Copies of Inclinations are available from the Inklings society.
