So as I wrap up my time at the University of Pittsburgh, I have had the good fortune to study with some great writers and artists. Two of them, Emily O'Donnell and Hadley Pratt, are the editors of the student culture magazine The Original which is preparing to release it's 11th issue. The magazines are free and located on-campus and other select locations.
For the 11th issue, I profiled slam poet and Pitt professor, Adriana Ramirez. Emily took the photos and wrote a sidebar to the piece about how Adriana uses World of Warcraft in her classes. It was great to work with my friend. Also, I am happy to have my work in a magazine edited by Hadley. My friend Vincent Mok has some articles in the magazine, too. When I won the two Writer's Cafe/Prosody writing contests, Nina Sabak has some poetry in there, too. It's a great publication. Hadley and Emily did a fantastic job overseeing the work of the staff of the magazine. Congratulations on the magazine, I am proud to have been part of it.
