The Miscellany News, Vassar College’s student newspaper of record since 1866, is excited to announce the launch of The Brewer’s Table, a new magazine-style subsidiary site. The Brewer’s Table is home to creative commentary and quips on the topics that our writers are most passionate about, including culture, art, music, science, social justice, internet, sports, politics and all of their intersections and overlaps. No matter the subject, we emphasize high-quality writing and deliberate, idiosyncratic thinking.

Each writer you will read here fills their own niche and exhibits a unique style and voice. We all write on our own schedules, and submit work when we feel inspired and motivated. The site functions as a collaborative project and a creative peer review, where every writer takes their “seat at the table,” and offers pitches, comments, edits and feedback to others at our table. After all, writing works best when it is in dialogue with others.

While the site is born out of the writers who have previously contributed to The Miscellany News, we are open to article pitches from alumnae/i, professors and any member of our broader readership. If you have a creative take on a unique topic, please email misc@vassar.edu.
