FROM THE EDITOR
Snowy Frankland | Editor in Chief
Snowy is an undergraduate student studying a Bachelor of Arts, majoring in Creative Writing.
The idea for a student magazine was conceived late during Semester Two 2018, over a few drinks at Sirius College, Lismore. Over the course of a year Flunk transformed a dozen times until it crystallised into its current form: a magazine to showcase the creative work of Southern Cross University students. Through the help of a dedicated group of team members and contributors, we have put together a first issue we are proud of, but we also need to thank a few special people for helping to make it happen.
Firstly, thanks to Dr Emma Doolan, who has mentored me as an Editor on this project for almost a year. Without her guidance and support Flunk wouldn’t be where it is today. Next, we need to thank our Art Director Matt Weismantel. Without him we couldn’t have delivered on one of our biggest goals to make the magazine look amazing. He has provided an insane amount of time and energy to create the artwork for this magazine, including a hand-painted illustration to accompany each short story. Thanks also to our designer Libby Lawler, for painstakingly designing the website to look and feel like a magazine, as well as creating all the promotional material to help advertise it. And of course, a huge thanks to the student association LEXSA, who have backed this project both financially and supportively. Without them Flunk wouldn’t have got off the ground at all.
Lastly, and most importantly, to all our issue one contributors, the Southern Cross University authors and artists who submitted their work. This would not have been possible without you!
