Letter from the editor: Mint is getting creative

October 9, 2019

This is the third letter of this nature that I have written, so I will keep this one short. I started as a Life reporter for The Daily Evergreen, but I always loved the loose feeling of Mint. It seemed a place to go for more creative nonfiction. As someone whose love of writing came in the form of...

We were constantly picking fruit, always working in a rush. We didn’t have time to think. We were mechanical because we were expected to be mechanical. But when I was up there at the tops of the trees, I stopped to watch the sunrise. As I stood on the 11th step of a twelve-foot ladder and watched...

Perhaps, as a reader of The Daily Evergreen, you’ve found yourself wondering what goes on behind the scenes of our newspaper. Or, maybe, you pick up the paper or click on an article and aren’t sure which faceless name produced what you’re looking at. Trust me, I was once in the same place....

Welcome, once again, to the Minty-freshest section around. We’re rocking a Mom’s Weekend theme today as we anticipate the arrival of thousands of Cougar parents on campus. This is my first Mom’s Weekend ever, and I don’t quite know what to expect. I’ve heard the rumors about moms going...

Now that I can sit outside without freezing, I’ve been spending a lot of time studying on Thompson Flats. And by studying, I mean getting distracted by all the people walking by and lounging on the grass near me. I’m not sure why I love people-watching, but I could sit for hours imagining stories...

Yesterday was the first official day of spring, and let me just say, it couldn’t come soon enough. Spring semester feels less than “springy,” and my fatigue and lack of productivity the past few months left me wondering if I might have Seasonal Affective Disorder. Turns out, I don’t have it,...

It’s my first winter in Pullman, and I can’t exactly say it’s going well. I was born and raised on the west side, so I’m a fan of moderate climates with minimal snow and ice. I heard Pullman was not conducive to my weather preferences, but for a lot of January, I was starting to believe this...

Welcome, once again, to Mint. You’ll notice this week we have a Valentine’s Day theme, and you know what that means! Time for a letter from the editor about everyone’s favorite holiday. Valentine’s Day is one of those holidays you either love or hate. There is no in-between. Specifically,...

I recently decided to live my life with more of a “full send” outlook. If you know me at all, you know I am definitely not a full send type of gal. I am absolutely not spontaneous — my planner is my life — and I think the phrase “partial send” is probably a safer life motto. However,...

Last semester, Mint frequently featured letters from the editor, or “lettidors,” written by former Mint section editor Lauren Ellenbecker. Fortunately, I ran into Lauren the other day and was able to ask for advice about crafting the perfect letter for readers. She revealed she sometimes got goo...

Hello again, Mint reader. I appreciate you taking the time to flip (or scroll, for you tech-savvy folks) to our section. If I’m being honest, I’m not entirely sure how to write a letter from the editor. It was a part of the job I conveniently forgot about until after I was hired, and, well, now...

My name is Emma Ledbetter and I am the new section editor for Mint. My special skills include being...
