The meeting this coming week will be held Wednesday in the Scrounge at Perkins Student Center at 6:30 p.m.

The tentative due date for first drafts is Nov. 6th. If you have any problems with this date, feel free to email us and we’ll work something out. If you want to write, but don’t have an idea, feel free to email us as well or attend the meeting. We can help you out.

Fall ‘07 Cover

Due to the rain, we cannot hold the launch party at Trabant today. The people who run Trabant also prohibited food and music indoors, so we had no choice but to cancel.

We have rescheduled the launch party for Monday, Oct. 29th on the Trabant patio between 1 and 4 p.m. It is forcasted to be sunny that day, so we should be covered.

If you’d like to pick up a copy of the magazine in advance, the staff is setting up a table inside Trabant and will be there between 12:30-ish and 4 p.m. today.

Tonight we’ll have the first “official” meeting of the Winter ’07 issue at 6:30 p.m. in the Scrounge at Perkins Student Center (off Academy St.). If you’re interested in writing, but can’t attend the meeting, feel free to email us with your idea and we’ll hold it for you.

Check out the latest issue of DEconstruction, enjoy some free food, and listen to Stone City perform next Wednesday (Oct. 24th) from 1 to 4 p.m. on the patio outside the Trabant student center. Bring as many friends as you like or stop by between classes.

We’re already ramping up for the next issue of the magazine. If you’d like to claim an article or just share an idea, feel free to shoot us an email at derridevil@gmail.com. We’ll keep you updated with information about upcoming meetings and events.

Layout Week

The magazine will be holding layout (how the magazine will look on paper) this coming week. We’ll be meeting every day (Mon. Oct. 8th through Fri. Oct. 12th) from 3 to 6 p.m. in the computer lab in the basement of the library. For layout we’ll be using Adobe inDesign instead of Quark, which we’ve used in the past. Don’t worry if you aren’t experienced with the program, since very few of us are. It’s a learning process and we’re all in the same boat. If you’d like to learn the basics before starting out, we suggest this website.

If you haven’t sent us your final draft, please send it to us by Monday.

Our next meeting will be held at 6:30 p.m. this Wednesday (Oct. 3rd) in the Scrounge at Perkins Student Center on Academy St. With layout week (Oct. 8th – 12th) approaching, we need to have all final drafts in by the end of this week. There will be brimstone and an eternity of poking for anyone who doesn’t have their final drafts in our inbox by this Sunday. As always, send them to us at derridevil@gmail.com. If you’re having any problems with the editing process or are interested in the layout process, feel free to contact us.
