At Wesleyan University sometimes students forget where they are. In the microcosm of the campus, Middletown becomes a distant part of everyday life despite being only a ten minute walk away. While Route 9 is not going to be able to close that divide between the communities of Wesleyan and Middletown, it will create one space, one magazine, that celebrates the writing and art of the entire community. Route 9’s goal is to bring together Wesleyan students, faculty, staff as well as Middletown residents and publish their work in one bi-annual magazine. Route 9 strives to celebrate where we are, what we create, and what we can all do together even in this one small city in Connecticut.
Route 9 was started by Oliver Egger '23.
The initial team includes Jack Stewart '23 and Jake Neuffer '23.
