During my senior year at Naropa University in Boulder, CO, I initiated an independent study project to publish news and stories from the Environmental Studies Department. I produced five issues of BABEL newsletter before graduating. Developed for current students and faculty, BABEL grew into the official newsletter for the department and became a marketing tool for the university, sent out by the Admissions Office to prospective students.
The project required soliciting fellow students as writers, photographers, poets, and reporters. I worked with faculty members on the title and content ideas. I organized each issue, acquired and edited submissions, designed the pages, and produced the publication. I learned QuarkXPress, gained management and production skills, and developed an increasing level of editorial judgment from the first to last issue.
