For several years before my bedtime I had been dreaming of making my own magazine, maybe in a  little naive way. I could imagine all those colourful pages, beautiful photos, unusual tutorials and the whole design. However what I could not imagine was the amount of work around it. Dozens of hours of editing, endless proofreading, taking photos, making up content, communicating with partners and authors, promoting... even few tears through exhaustion and liters of green tea. Even though I sometimes felt like ripping all the pages, and throw them into the trash, which is not what you can physically do with the data on your computer, I feel that creating a magazine in this small polymer community is one big commitment. One thing I could not have imagined in those dreams: That the Polymer Week Magazine could fly out to the world at such a speed and that it would be read by so many people from different countries and would be able to move the polymer community forward… and that’s only the third issue! I do not know a better feeling than bringing fresh inspiration and up-to-date topics to the polymer world. Especially thanks to the dozens people involved in each issue.
