It's amazing, I think, that Klipsun ever gets produced. Seven editors, 10 stories, 16 days, three computers, a slide scanner and a lot of coffee,- when separated they are just random elements, but put together they somehow make 32 beautiful pages. At least we think they're beautiful.

Two issues just haven't been enough for me. Forget graduation,- I'd like to stay and work for Klipsun forever. But since I can't. I'm happily passing the torch to the winter quarter editor, Jana Alexander.

Jana, a natural copy editor, clever writer and conscientious journalist, has ambitious plans for the March and April issues of Klipsun. We've redefined the roles of Story Editor, Layout Coordinator and Art Director for winter quarter and are even considering producing only a single 64-page issue each quar­ter to replace the two 32-page issues we produce now.

Winter quarter brings even more changes: for the first time since March of 1996, there will be no Coyne-Collin or Justin-on Klipsun's staff. Through never-ending creativity and unbelievable dedication, Collin and Justin were largely responsible for the dramatic changes that were made to Klipsun in the past year-and-a-half. Their contribution to the editorial staff has been immeasurable. They're both leaving us in order to find time to do other things like graduate and find a job with a believable paycheck. Those traitors.

It isn't easy to give up being editor of Klipsun. The oppor­tunities available to the Klipsun staff are unfathomable. Just think; 32 pages of space, no advertising, technological and artistic resources and training available for the plucking, and a class of more than 20 writers creating a plethora of arti­cles to choose from. No professional magazine offers writers or editors this kind of freedom or range of expression. Find us on-line at www.wwu.edu/~klipsun, e-mail us at klipsun@cc.wwu.edu or call us at 650-3737. We are your magazine. We'd like to know who you are.
