Morningside College literary publication is finalist in national competition
Kiosk, the literary magazine produced and published by Morningside College, has been named a finalist in the 2006 Associated Collegiate Press (ACP) Association’s Magazine Pacemaker Contest.
Twelve colleges and universities have been named as finalists, and winners will be announced at the National College Media Convention, Nov. 24-28, 2007, in Washington, D.C.
Each year the ACP solicits entries for the Magazine Pacemaker award from the previous school year. Each entry in the competition is judged by professional non-ACP staff persons knowledgeable about magazine production.
Cliff Thompson, a 2006 graduate of Morningside College, served as student-editor for the 2006 Kiosk.
The Kiosk has been produced nearly each year since 1938 and includes fiction, non-fiction, poetry, and artwork composed by students, alumni, or members of the Morningside College community. The publication is edited and designed by students of the college. Faculty advisors for the Kiosk include Dr. Stephen Coyne, professor of English, John Kolbo, instructor of art, and Terri McGaffin, assistant professor of art.

ACP offers its members professional services and resources, and promotes the standards and ethics of good journalism as accepted and practiced by print, broadcast and electronic media in the United States.
