Kiosk, the literary magazine produced and published by Morningside College, received a silver medalist certificate for college literary-art publications from the Columbia Scholastic Press Association (CSPA) during its annual Medalist Critique.
Each year, CSPA invites student newspapers, magazines, yearbooks, or online media to submit issues or hyperlinks for review and judging in its Medalist Critiques. The critiques contain a written set of standards developed by CSPA to itemize the best practices for student media, provide detailed guidance on how well a student print or online media is currently progressing, and how it could improve during the following year. The Kiosk was evaluated in the areas of organization, content, and design for prose fiction and non-fiction, poetry, and visual content.
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, associate professor of English, John Kolbo, instructor of art, and Terri McGaffin, visiting assistant professor of art.
CSPA is an international student press association, founded in 1925, whose goal is to unite student journalists and faculty advisers at schools and colleges through educational conferences, idea exchanges, textbooks, critiques, and award programs.
