R.I.P: Horizon Magazineand Open Letters
As the recent wave of dot-com carnage continues, we are sad to announce the passage of two of our favorite online publications, Horizon Magazine and Open Letters. Both sites announced their final issue last week. Horizon is a Baltimore-based youth webzine, focused on the arts, culture, and activism by focusing on positive solutions to community problems. We will dearly miss Horizon's heartfelt coverage of issues ranging from the environment, to the drug war, to hunger and homelessness. Open Letters delivered its readers daily or weekly emails that contained in-depth personal essays from a cadre of great writers in the form of a more meaty printed 'magazine.' Open Letters editor Paul Tough writes, 'What Open Letters felt like was something that evolved on its own, a living thing, created not only by its editors and writers, but by its readers as well. So that's what I'm grateful for: for the chance to have been a part of it.' Both publications will keep their websites archived online indefinitely, so be sure to check them out.
