About Digressions

When Digressions Literary & Art Journal was first introduced in 2004 by then senior editor, D.J. King, it was a way for Nova Southeastern University students to "take a break from 'Works Cited' and turn inwardly to work sighted." As Digressions continues throughout the years, it strives to be an open and safe space for all NSU students to showcase their creative works. Digressions is furthermore a place where students can share their experiences and ideas with fellow readers and be surrounded by remarkable collections of art, poetry, photography, and stories. At Digressions, we encourage everyone to Imagine, Create, and Inspire, in hopes of helping them unleash their inner creativity.

This year marks the 20th Anniversary of Digressions, and this issue honors this milestone by focusing on self-reflection. We begin by looking back to our origins with an interview with the first student editor and first faculty advisor of Digressions, and our student submissions continue this process by engaging with themes of self-exploration, introspection, and self-knowledge.
