RADNOR, Pa. (April 25, 2018)—The 2017 edition of Cabrini University’s Woodcrest student literary magazine received a Silver Crown Award from the Columbia Scholastic Press Association (CSPA).
One of 1,100 entries nationwide, Cabrini was the only institution recognized for a collegiate digital literary magazine. CSPA judges publications on their excellence as shown by their design, photography, concept, coverage, and writing.
“It gives me an amazing sense of pride to see how each group of students imprints their own mark on each edition while keeping the same high standards,” said faculty advisor Amy Persichetti, EdD, Interim Chair and Associate Professor of English. “Every year when the edition comes together, I am floored by the growth and professionalism of our students.”
This is Cabrini’s seventh Crown award. Published annually, students cultivate the digital publication of Woodcrest through writing, publishing, and editing courses. For the 2017–18 edition, Lindsey Piller (’17) and Megan Smith (’17) served as editors.
The project-based learning course is available each year.
