360 Magazine is a narrative journalism magazine I founded at Ithaca College. As Editor-in-Chief, I oversaw a staff of four editors and 20 contributors to produce this semesterly publication. Each issue centers on a core "story," with each article meant to cover a full circle of "angles." The writing and reporting style is meant to be immersive and literary, modeled after the New Yorker (though executed with varying degrees of success).
During my tenure, we published three times. Below are scrollable versions of the recession issue, the healthcare issue, and the Ithaca issue. I've also included a student-made video documenting a typical production period.
Official Mission Statement
The goal of 360 Magazine is to tell stories. Whole stories. Stories told journalistically and creatively, inside and out, up and down. If a hot story walks into our bar, 360 isn't up for a one-night stand, honey...we're in it for the long haul. Let's buy a house and make babies.
The idea of storytelling is one too often oversimplified. We believe that no story can be told fully from the standpoint of one writer or one perspective. As such, our staff chooses only one story to be told and retold again from a chorus of perspectives, bringing shade and depth to the way we communicate the vast and gorgeously diverse world around us.
As C.S. Lewis once so eloquently said, "miracles are a retelling in small letters of the very same story which is written across the whole world in letters too large for some of us to see."
