The Echo

Current Volume: Volume 2019

Dear reader,
It has been a privilege to create the magazine you now hold in your hands. We, the Editorial Board, asked you for your ravings, your yearnings, your rage, your confessional, your obsessive, your brutally, beautifully honest. And you rose to our challenge, exceeding our expectations as you do every year. I am truly grateful for your courage to create and to share your art. This magazine would not exist without you, reader, because The Echo is above all the creation of our student body, by our student body, and for our student body. My hope is that you will find some aspect of yourselves, and the world we share, within these pages. Learn from those pages that are written through unfamiliar eyes. Grow from those pages that present a reality you never thought to dig for.

This edition of The Echo owes debts of gratitude to our faithful advisors, Dr. Joni Tevis, Dr. Laura Morris and Mr. Neil Jamerson. Their steadfast support and wisdom make such a thing as The Echo possible and their guidance was invaluable in compiling this magazine. I must also express my personal thanks to Dr. Tevis and Dr. Morris—they are our inspirations in the classroom, fostering passionate creators, readers, and editors every day.

I would also like to thank my Editorial Board and my Assistant Editors for their cooperation and enthusiasm, and above all for sharing in my dream of creating something inimitable, audacious, exquisite: 2019’s The Echo.
