In January 2002, I was the Military Editor of KFOR Dialogue, which was the official publication of KFOR – Kosovo Force (KFOR) a NATO/Partnership for Peace (PfP) Peacekeeping Force. It was a Tri-Linguistic, Bi-Weekly 8-Page Broadsheet Newspaper. I worked on the transition from the Newspaper insert KFOR Dialogue to the Magazine For You (4U), which is now produced and financed by KFOR, printed in Kosovo and distributed freely. It is a youth magazine translated in to Albanian/English and Serbian/English. www.magazineforyou.com
