The Fancy Update [Oct. 20th, 2005|02:20 pm]
Accepted With Extreme Prejudice
The Fancy Update

This hasn't been updated in a while, so I decided to take it upon myself to inform everyone as to what is going on in the wonderful world of Accepted With Extreme Prejudice.

This week we decided on the the layout of the magazine, including the decision of what submissions made it into the issue and what did not. The "editor board" met twice to make these decisions, and emails were sent to those whose pieces did not make it.

Currently a selected group of the staff are undergoing the arduous task of editing the short fiction entries. The staff who desires to make decisions conerning editing one's work will send emails asking the student for verification.

Tomorrow is the weekly general meeting, and there it will be discussed and decided as to who will be designing specific pages. Standards for design will be set down concerning font and style, but it will be an open project nonetheless.

The designs will be due by 12:30pm (noon) on Sunday, so as to give adequate time to compile the fininshed product before Monday. On Monday I will be showing Soto the finished project, and then will go to the Copy Center to see how much it will cost, and respectively see how accurate our Division of Mathematical Equations and Figurings was in the pre-design economic calculations.

It will take several days to print the magazine, I assume, and hopefully by the end of the week I will have two hundred copies of the first issue in my possession. These copies will not be distributed (although they may be perused as to staff request) until Monday, the 31st, which is the "official" release date. Otherwise known as Halloween, the release date will feature a "Release Party" in the library at a time to be decided. The magazine's Special Interests and Totally-Sweet Party Division has been meeting with Soto in preparation for the upcoming Release Party. There will be food, oh yes. And there will be a microphone and podium if the desire to read selections from the magazine presents itself. This is another great oppurtunity for students to expose themselves to the great aspects of writing - the presentation of pieces. According the holiday, it will be encouraged that students dress up as famous literary characters or writers, or if they are photographers, they will be encouraged to dress up as just that - a famous photographer (if one such thing exists! - I jest, I jest).

The plan for the time period after the release party will be much smoother. We will not only be funded by the student senate at that point, but will also have much more slack with which to work in designing the magazine when it comes to pacing and time. There have been a lot of suggestions presented throughout the course of producing this issue of the magazine, and although the product we are in the process of creating is certainly respectable, much will be able to be improved.

In any case, make sure you email the literary mag's official email (rwu.lit@gmail.com) if you have any comments or questions, and as always I thank you for contributing, reading, and being involved.

Funding [Oct. 13th, 2005|12:11 pm]
Accepted With Extreme Prejudice
And the updates continue to flow through!

Today our advisor, Professor Soto, informed me that the Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences has agreed to fund our first issue! This is great news indeed, considering we were about to be paying with our own pocket change, selling ourselves on the streets, and other wonderfully horrible fund-raising ideas.

In addition, the Dean has agreed to pay for a Halloween Release Party! Grab your costumes of all your famous literary influences, and get ready to have a bash of a time at some point on Monday, October 31st. We will give away the copies at this reading, as well as have our writers read their work.

Email if you have any questions!

introduction [Sep. 25th, 2005|01:07 am]
Accepted With Extreme Prejudice
an e-mail from greg bem.. this was sent out to the goers of the friday meeting, but i thought it was vital for all... so i condensed it slightly to apply to all.

Monday we're going to make this official through the school, BUT, I think we need to have a minimum of ten members - possibly twelve. At the moment, I've got listed 8 including myself, so we need a couple more people that are willing to be a part of this.

Thus, assignment number 1: personally go out and find someone who'd like to be a piece of this literary pie. Just snag their email, AIM, name, and what they plan on doing, and mail it to me. That way, when I go to the office and start the process of turning this club official, there won't be any snags.Alright, it's been proposed that the next meeting will be at 9:30pm this coming Wednesday, with a close follow-up on Friday at 4:00pm. The Wednesday meeting's going to be for people both desiring to work and desiring to sumbit, and Friday's only the designers. Also, send all your name ideas to me. I'll make a list and then on Wednesday we can vote (or on Friday if that's the case). The new flyers should be available on Monday. It'd be great if people could distribute them to friends, in writing classes, et cetera.

Start browsing your writing / start writing - don't worry about what it is, just write whatever your into.

Halloween is going to be a dark issue, so keep that in mind.

- Greg B.
