FCC Literary and Visual Arts Magazine Earns 9th Consecutive 1st-Place Award
For the ninth consecutive year, the American Scholastic Press Association has recognized Frederick Community College’s (FCC) literary and visual arts magazine, The Tuscarora Review, with a first-place award.
The intention of the 2023 edition of The Tuscarora Review was to, “elevate the voices of marginalized stories, ideas, and topics to destigmatize these experiences that are simply everyday life events for many.” The student-led editorial board noted that this edition was created for “those who were ever too afraid to speak their truth, for those who ever felt silenced, unheard, or dismissed, and for those who have felt alone.”
Working on The Tuscarora Review benefits students by providing them with a unique experiential learning opportunity. “In one semester, students create a literary magazine that has a 44-year legacy at Frederick Community College,” said Magin LaSov Gregg, faculty advisor to the magazine. “They learn editing and publishing skills, and they also learn skills that transfer across disciplines, such as how to evaluate the work of their peers, how to reach consensus across differences, and how to consider multiple perspectives when making decisions.”
The American Scholastic Press Association places an emphasis on student journalism and writing while promoting ethical journalism and academic excellence. The Tuscarora Review focuses on quality writing and visual art and features poetry, fiction, essays, photography, paintings, drawings, and mixed media artwork submitted by students.
