"The Alternate" was a short-run, blatantly-designated publication created to present an underrepresented group of voices on the GCSU campus. I was one of the founders, and oversaw its creation from the middle distance until the last week before each print run. At that point I would take the roughly hewn block of text and shape it into a fine specimen of student reportage. I obsessed over the details, including margins, on which word a line should end, and how many picas of breathing room each character received. I then led a group through the hand feeding, cooling, sorting and stapling of each issue.
Alas, no copies of the 3 issues are in my possession.
