As many of you know, The first Touchstone of the year (Vol. 16,
No. 1) was delayed because our longtime printer unexpectedly went out
of business. Consequently, we're extending the due date for
articles, ads, announcements, and poems for our second issue. The
new due date is Tuesday, April 4. If you're planning on submitting
something for that issue, please contact me as soon as
possible. Also if you would like a copy of The Touchstone writer's
guide please let me know.
Our first issue is now back from the printers and is available
(or will be soon) at several blue newspaper boxes and other locations
throughout Bryan and College Station as well as on the Blinn and A&M
campuses. For those of you who receive a copy by mail, we hope to get
those out soon.
We have several really good articles in this issue including
many by local writers. The lead, "Reflections on the Wall, A
Remembrance" by Gary Varner, I think many people will find to be very
moving. Local writers Ray White, Charles Phillips, Karen Hall, Lisa
Wildmo, Bud Wurtz, and Anne Lessem all have fine articles. In
addition, we have poetry by Anne McCrady; cartoons by Tom Tomorrow,
Matt Wuerker, and Golliver; and some really nice pieces by Bob
Jensen, Tim Wise, Paul Street, David Atwood, Ed Sebesta, Greg Moses,
Kevin Stoda, and Philip Brasfield.
We need people to help distribute the magazine. This involves
seeing that some newspaper boxes and businesses are supplied with
magazines and then rechecking every few days/weeks. This is not a
particularly time-consuming task -- provided we have enough people to
do it. If you'd like to help out, we're having a distribution
meeting on Monday, April 27 at 6 PM at Revolution in downtown
Bryan. If you can't help distribute but would like to meet some of
us or volunteer to do something else, please also stop by. Finally,
if you'd like to help distribute but can't make the meeting, let me
know and we can make arrangements to get you some bundles and set
aside some delivery locations.
I hope to see you at Revolution.
