“Replication,” Montgomery County Community College’s art and literature magazine, has been recognized with two awards in the 2019 American Scholastic Press Association Annual Contest, Most Outstanding College Literary-Art Magazine and First Place with Special Merit.
The magazine which features a collection of artwork, poetry, and prose created by students was one of just eight colleges and universities nationwide honored with the Most Outstanding College Literary-Art Magazine award in the Special Category of Highest Magazine Awards.
“Replication” is a creative partnership between MCCC’s Fine Arts Program and the English Department. For the 2018-2019 year, the faculty advisors were English Instructor Thomas Powers and Art Senior Lecturer Christopher Stanley.
The role of the advisors is to appoint the editor-in-chief and guide the students. However the students are the ones who make decisions on the content and the focus of the magazine.
Last year, the editor-in-chief was Emily McLaughlin of Lansdale.
“As editor, I organized a great team that helped to stay focus and put together a cohesive and stylized magazine,” said McLaughlin. “We get all sorts of beautiful submissions, from traditional and digital painting to photographs and short stories. It was great to get feedback from the team to bring all the pieces together.”
