"Working as the senior editor of Tidal Echoes was one of the greatest experiences I had while attending UAS. in order to bring the journal together, I had to work with an art editorial board--hand selecting each and every piece to be published. I also got the opportunity to work side-by-side with amazing authors such as Kim Heacox and Richard Dauenhauer, as well as talented artists like Patrice Helmar and Jeremy Kane. The overall process included copy editing, sending out letters to submitters, figuring out the layout of the journal, watching the journal get printed, advertising for the launch, as well as putting the launch together and making sure that everything ran smoothly. Overall, it was a lot of work but in the end I was able to hold in my hands a book that I had helped produce, and there is no better feeling that that." - - Alexandra Brown, Editor 2013.

"With every edition that is published, it becomes increasingly evident that Tidal Echoes is a labor of love for everyone involved. Year after year, its artists--both literary and visual--continue to give stunning pieces of themselves to the community, and its editors turn those works into something beautiful." --Jacqueline Boucher, Fall Inter 2012.
"I learned so much interning for Tidal Echoes. I got to design submission posters. I was able to visit high school classrooms (a Tidal Echoes first) to show publication opportunities available to the students. I was charged with conducting the author and artist interviews. I collated all of the submissions into one gigantic document. I got to read all the of the awesome talent of Southeast Alaska. The knowledge I gained working behind the scenes at the journal is invaluable to both my personal and professional life. I know a little more about what publications are looking for when I submit. I was able to step out of my comfort zone and interact with so many talented people. This is an experience for which I will forever be grateful."--Karissa Sleppy, Fall Intern 2013.
