Volume 19, Issue 1: Wonderlings (2010-2011 Issue)
Notes on the 2010/2011 Issue
This year, The Promethean Staff wanted to encourage a large variety of entries. We wanted to get all sorts of submissions from all sorts of people. We didn't want to limit anyone. We also could not decide on a theme. So, we, the group of indecisive English majors, did what no literary journal staff has ever done before. That statement may or may not be true, but we did something pretty rare. We chose two themes. We decided we would have a double book, with two covers. One theme would be Wonderlings, the other Forbidden. The book would be able to be read from either direction. Of course it wouldn't be too hard to do, no problem. Ha.
Despite some of the unforeseen difficulties of doing a "double book," our original goal was achieved. We received many wonderful pieces from a variety of people. Here, in this collection, are the ones that made the cut. These are the poems that made us laugh, the photos that left us in awe, and the stories that caused us to regain hope in the future of writing.
We spent the year arguing about form, nitpicking comma placement, and hunting down people for copyedits and biographies. But we made it, and we are here, still standing strong, ready to present to you this year's edition of The Promethean.
This journal is a group effort. This could not have been done without all of our student editors, faculty and staff supporters, and of course, all of our wonderful contributors. Thank you everyone, for helping us make a journal full of exceptional work that we all can enjoy.
