Editor's Note:
The journal you're holding is a living document. In it's own small way, it will contribute to humankind's spiraling, never-ending conversation about who we are as human beings. The prose, art, and drama published within holds a mirror up to our culture-albeit a compact-sized mirror-and the images and feelings reflected will tweak your worldview. Our little book's reach is indeterimant. We know it will reside on subway cars, coffee tables, library shelves, and the backs of toilets. Next semester, graphic artists creating Zine Columbia will interpret the stories into graphic form. We have high expectations for our little book, and the writers contributing to the 2010 edition are up to the task. We were affected by their submissions and know you will be too. Literature never dies. Sure, books go out of print, but the ideas expressed are immortal. Enjoy the journey.
