- THE QUILL
A quill, or writing pen, is a sign of communication formed from a bird’s feather. It is a powerful weapon for writers. A skilled writer may do far more than a successful soldier on the battlefield because writing is more than a weapon; it is something that lasts long after the author has passed away. “Pen is mightier than a sword,” as the saying suggests. Also, the quill represents the student journalists who continue to strive for truth and fairness.
