In her career, Julia Taylor has hopscotched back and forth between print and public radio. But one thing is for certain: She loves talking to people and telling their stories. She’s worked in public radio stations from the Hudson Valley to Washington, DC. She’s written for publications as varied as a business journal in Central Pennsylvania to a nonprofit magazine in New York City. A lover of travel, film, music, and food, she leans toward everything “indie.” Click here to read Julia's profile of “Spiritually Speaking,” broadcast Tuesdays nights at 4pm on Vassar College’s WVKR, 91.3FM. Jeremy Schwartz is a freelance writer living in Poughkeepsie. In recent years, he has been a staff writer for the Taconic Press and Weekly Beat, covering subjects as varied as the Dutchess County Legislature, the trial of notorious conman Frank Zarro, and the purchase of alternative energy by municipalities. His film reviews and music features have appeared in Pulse and Weekend. Jeremy’s work has also appeared in the Kingston Times, the Poughkeepsie Journal, and Hudson Valley Parent. His musical favorites range from Killing Joke to Gene Krupa. Jeremy’s preview of Robert Cray’s upcoming Albany concert appears here. This issue marks the end of Rebecca Wild Nelson’s Chronogram internship. A SUNY New Paltz student, Rebecca focuses on creative writing and women’s studies and plans to help start a Students for a Democratic Society chapter on campus in the spring, in an effort to revive the activist spirit of New Paltz. Rebecca travels when she isn’t in school, including a near month-long stint doing relief work in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina. Rebecca’s pointers for unconventional honeymoons appears here. Her poem “Ways to Lose Weight” appears here. Thirteen years ago, Yulia Zarubina moved with her family to Ithaca from her native Kazakhstan. (Yes, she thinks Borat is funny). Yulia graduated from SUNY New Paltz with BFA in graphic design and began her tenure with Luminary Publishing in early 2002 as a freelance designer. This issue is Yulia’s last as production director, a position she has held for the past four years, transforming a one-person department into a multi-publication juggernaut. Yulia will be relocating to Wilmington, North Carolina, with her husband, Tim, where they will live 11 miles from the beach and wait to welcome their first child.
