I did a two-year stint as a slush reader and then as an editor on the staff of Leading Edge Magazine, BYU’s renowned science fiction and fantasy magazine. This magazine has been around for a while, and its former staff members include more publishing professionals (see: Brandon Sanderson, Dave Wolverton) than any other student-run magazine on BYU campus. I had a great time being on the staff. The two issues below, 65 and 66, are the issues I worked on.
I left the editorial side of Leading Edge after a couple of years so that I could focus more on building my craft as a writer. After leaving, I had the opportunity to write part 2 of a four-part short story for Issue 68, which is linked below.
