Pulp Magazine editorial team revealed after months-long process
Honi Let may reveal that Ariana Haghighi, Bonnie Huang, Harry Gay, Nandini Dhir, Patrick McKenzie and Rhea Thomas will complete the editorial team of pulp magazine following a months-long competitive selection process.
Composed exclusively of DRIP for Honi alumni, the six will join editor Marlow Hurst to produce the revamped Sydney University Union (USU) pulp magazine. It is expected that Pulp will focus on popular culture, deep and diverse cultural content – if Hurst’s letter to Honi Let describe the death of HoniThe miscellaneous category of is any measure.
the incoming Pulp the editorial team has substantial writing and art experience in Honi Letwith Bonnie Huang and Ariana Haghighi having edited A CAR, Queer and Honi women between them. All Haghighi bars contributed to Pulp before the Council reforms. Incoming editors also bring editorial experience on board off campus, such as Thomas’ work as a nonfiction editor at Voiceworks Magazine.
Media and Communications (MECO) is disproportionately represented by the incoming editorial team because, with the exception of Haghighi (Arts/Law II), the rest of the editorial team are MECO students.
In 2021 the USU Board of Trustees was reformed Pulp into a semi-annual glossy magazine in response to its online-only predecessor’s declining readership in the face of intensive news Honiwith outgoing USU President Prudence Wilkins-Wheat comparing the magazine to the new yorker. Given that editor Marlow Hurst is co-chair of the Cartoon Caption Contest Club, the current editorial team may be in a good position to realize the Wilkins-Wheat analogy.
According to the USU Board of Trustees, the first edition of pulp magazine will be published at the beginning of the second half of 2022.
