3 Quarks Daily Welcomes Our New Monday Columnists

Hello Readers and Writers,

We received a large number of submissions of sample essays in our search for new columnists. Most of them were very good (with a small number of incomprehensible pieces thrown in just to test our sanity, I suppose) and it was hard deciding whom to accept and whom not to. If you did not get selected, it does not at all mean that we didn't like what you sent, we just have a limited number of slots. We will once again be expanding the number of 3QD columns on Mondays, which have withered by attrition in the last couple of years. Today we welcome to 3QD the following persons, in alphabetical order by last name:

  1. Fountain-pens-530Humera Afridi
  2. Muhammad Aurangzeb Ahmad
  3. Christopher Bacas
  4. Aasem Bakhshi
  5. Katalin Balog
  6. Libby Bishop
  7. Holly Case
  8. Evan Edwards
  9. Elise Hempel
  10. Richard King
  11. Michael Liss
  12. Paul North
  13. Daniel Ranard
  14. Ryan Ruby
  15. Max Sirak
  16. Genese Marie Sodikoff
  17. Katrin Trüstedt
  18. Olivia Zhu

I will be in touch with all of you in the next days to schedule a start date. The “About Us” page will be updated with short bios and photographs of the new writers no later than the day they start.

Thanks to all of the people who sent samples of writing to us. It was a pleasure to read them all. Congratulations to the new columnists!

Best wishes,
