Thursday, May 6, 2010 17:11 GMTSAN FRANCISCO (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) Two days and lots of coffee is all it takes to put together a magazine.
Thats what a group of six journalists are trying to accomplish with the 48-Hour Magazine Project, where theyll write, edit, and design an entire layout and publication this Saturday (May 8) through Sunday (May 9).
Spokesperson Mat Honan is announcing the magazines theme tomorrow (May 7) and accepting photo and story submissions from anyone hoping to be included.
He expects the rush job will lead to some crying in the wee hours of the night, though he doesnt see fists flying because everyone involved gets along just fine.
Just in case any power struggles break out, one person has been appointed the deciding power over the entire magazine.
To keep creative juices flowing, a local coffee roaster has sponsored the event and is providing plenty of java to make sure no one passes out at their desk.© Copyright 2010 Wireless Flash News Inc
