Invitation to Contents May Be Hot: Notes on the 2008/2009 Issue

During our first meeting, I let the staff know my expectations for the 2008-2009 Promethean edition. Like previous years, I imagined fresh, bold writing and raw talent. With the same inspiration, I imagined a bolder journal; a journal with power and authenticity; a journal that would forever be memorable for the quality, quantity and impression. The Promethean staff grounded these ideas, while the contributors shaped them. I've never felt prouder of The Promethean. Graduating and leaving the position to Kristine never scared me; I knew we had the same visions, and I give all the credit to her.

-Jess Bouchard, Managing Editor Fall Semester

 

Working on The Promethean this spring has been one of the most difficult experiences of my college career, but, like so many 'diffucult' things, it has also been the most rewarding. As Managing Editor I have seen the process through from all angles: working as a member of the submissions team, copyediting and all the procedures involved with pre-press. I know this complication inside and out. The words are by now familar; the emotion and movement behind each piece has touched me deeply. For my final semester at Concordia I could ask for no greater privilege than to be so intimately involved with this caliber of publication.

This 2008-2009 Promethean is unique. It is a continuation of Jess' and my vision for the edition: the works inside are bold, captivating, exciting, and raw. As The Promethean has grown in popularity it's quality has increased accordingly. This is no solitary work, and credit truly goes out to Jess, the editorial staff, and all contributers whose work truly made the contents "hot." It is on their behalf that I present to you the 2008-2009 edition of The Promethean: Contents May Be Hot.
