Jerone Hsu, CC ’07, former Editor-in-Chief of Tablet, founder of Eclectica Esoterica (whose latest, beautifully designed issue includes essays about Times New Roman and psychedelic drug use), and B&W graphics editor of yore is still gracing campus with his artistic talent. Now, though, it’s for hire, albeit for a good cause: he’s selling his mural-painting services to raise startup capital for a non-profit group that will help arts organizations in the area find funding. Yes, your McBain double could look like an updated Sistine Chapel–e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org for a consultation.
Meanwhile, other former editors-in-chief are doing cool shit too: Current founder Bari Weiss just finished a fellowship at the Wall Street Journal and is now off for another in Israel. Former Spectator head Megan Greenwell is nearing the end of a tour in Iraq for the Washington Post. Birch founder and last year’s CPR editor Paul Sonne will begin his Marshall-funded stint at Oxford this fall, and B&W editor emeritus Avi Zenilman is scribing for the Politico, a new-ish journalistic venture in D.C.
See what a bustling campus publications scene launches! Or maybe it’s just them.
UPDATE, Saturday, 11:50 PM: Last year’s editor-in-chief of the Columbia Review, Katarzyna Kozanecka (now Nikhamina), married her high school sweetheart in June and is now working for the Manhattan District Attorney’s office.
