Amelia mentioned our Wren’s Nest Publishing Co. venture in this very blog not too long ago.
That’s all fine and good, but I think it’s worth stressing just how neat this program is.
It’s neat mostly because we get to think of cool things and then do them, like hang out with Hollis Gillespie.
(This picture, submitted by the author herself, is admittedly a little fuzzy …you know, like the morals of the Wren’s Nest Staff)
We thought it’d be cool to hang out with her, so we said, “Hollis, wanna hang out?” And she was all like, “Uh, yeah sure.”
Easy. Real easy!
Amelia already mentioned that we took a field trip of Paste Magazine, who taught us a little something about design.
For you old folks, Paste Magazine is like Rolling Stone, except it’s about music.
Then tomorrow we get to go to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution to take a tour of the place.
(Not this one, where Joel Chandler Harris worked, but the newer one, which is less awesome.)
They’re going to teach us how to layout our magazine. And they’re going to print our magazine for free.
Then maybe, just maybe, we’ll be like, “Hey Pulitzer Prize winners, can we interview you for our literary journal?” And then all the Pulitzer Prize winners in the building will stand up and be like, “Uh, yeah sure.”
It’s that easy!
