Daisy Chain Collaborations

A daisy chain, also known as a “round robin,” is a type of collaborative writing where each contributor writes one part before passing it onto the next person to continue the piece. To connect the creative community at McMaster outside of synchronous events, students created some “daisy chain” collaborative stories and poems of their own via our website forum in winter 2021. Now we’re thrilled to be sharing them across our socials this week!

All collaborative pieces will be included in the Incite issues of the 2021-2022 school year so that they’ll be available physically in print to readers across campus and the surrounding area (while 2020-2021 issues have either been purely digital or printed with limited copies). This writing will also serve as a kind of time capsule for in-person readers, harkening back to That One Time when we were all working remotely and still trying to connect creatively in spite of the circumstances.

To those who contributed, we should have sent out an email to confirm if you’d like to be credited for these pieces. If that email missed you but you’d definitely like for your name included in the eventual print copy of this piece, please message us!
Stay tuned to our socials to see the Daisy Chain pieces as they're being posted this week:

About Incite

Est. 1997, Incite Magazine is McMaster University’s independent arts and culture publication featuring personal essays, fiction, poetry, commentary, research, interviews, sketches, photography, paintings, digital art, and more. We aim to foster the growth of a creative community promoting self-expression, collaboration, and dialogue within our university campus and city of Hamilton.  wonderful student volunteers.

We would like to recognize that the main McMaster University campus sits on the traditional territory shared between the Haudenosaunee confederacy and the Anishinabe nations, which was acknowledged in the Dish with One Spoon wampum belt. That wampum uses the symbolism of a dish to represent the territory, and one spoon to represent that the people are to share the resources of the land and only take what they need. Though the student body is scattered all over right now, it feels important to still reflect critically on what place means in the context of the campus we may be referring back to.

Rather than simply making this acknowledgement as a tokenized gesture, we would also like to reaffirm our publication's commitment to better serving the Indigenous peoples and the land through the creative works that we showcase in our publication, the voices that we strive to amplify, and the spaces and initiatives that we create.
