Kudos to THE BYGONE BUREAU

Some good news passed along by Professor Nimura regarding a student-edited publication:

“The online journal The Bygone Bureau, co-edited by senior English majors Kevin Nguyen and Nick Martens, has made it to the finalist round of the SXSW Web Awards! SXSW is in Austin, Texas; it’s a music and media conference, according to the website, but it’s a HUGE festival featuring almost 2000 musical acts from around the world. A pop music lover’s dream, from what I’ve heard.

The award process is first a nomination, then a review process to determine finalists, and then the awards ceremony in March. The awards are judged on visual design, functionality, content, interactivity, and creativity.
The Bygone Bureau has published 3x/week almost continuously for over a year; contributors are mostly UPS student writers and alums, but also a few other student writers from around the country. I’ve been following it since its inception. Many of you have probably had Bureau writers in your classes; the staff list is on the website. Nick is also one of the SymPOEsium student assistants.
To see the Bygone Bureau, if you haven’t already, check out:”

Thanks to Professor Nimura for the news, and congratulations to the Bygone Bureau’s editors and writers!
