Colorado State Chess Association


Looking for New Colorado Informant Editor/Writer!

Hey everyone,

VP Jesse Cohen here,


As many of you are now aware, our spectacular Editor Fred Spell is retiring from doing the informant. He will be deeply missed both as a character and as the most amazing editor this magazine has ever had. We NEED someone willing to step up to help take us into the next era of chess news/information for Colorado. One suggested idea is a video informant that we post to YouTube (or a similar platform). We would have tournaments, authors, and the Colorado chess scene send in their articles, games, and news for us to put in a video format. This is the direction I'd like to see us go in however many people are still a fan of having an actual magazine (even in a purely digital form). 

We are very open to receiving help including from our high schoolers. Many of you go to college and we know the importance of having community service on your college application. This is an excellent opportunity to help make the informant better than ever and fuel your future! We're also looking for people who know how to make and edit videos. 

Please let me know if you're someone interested in contributing to making a great informant so we can carry the great tradition that Fred Spell has formed all these many years!
