John Cooper Upper School literary magazine receives top honors
The 2012 edition of the John Cooper Upper School's literary magazine, "Inkblots," recently received top honors from two of the country's top scholastic press associations, according to a press release.
Volume 15, titled "ANONYMOUS," was given the All-American Rating for the second consecutive year by the National Scholastic Press Association and was awarded bonus points for exceptional layout and design.
The literary magazine also received a Gold Medal for the fifth consecutive year from the Columbia Scholastic Press Association by scoring 959 out of a possible 1,000 points and was recognized with All-Columbian honors for content and design.
"These are top honors and the judges' comments praise the work of all who worked on and contributed to 'ANONYMOUS,'" Peter Elliott, faculty advisor and an English teacher at the school, said in the release. "Each of the pieces tells its own story and the story you've put together overall helps the reader experience the questioning of identity. As we each form who we are through our words and experiences, so does this book shape the reader's understanding of the journey, starting in a state of invisibility and moving toward a definite form."
The 78-page magazine includes 51 pieces of literature and 60 works of visual art. The staff consisted of student editors Vicky Rodriguez, editor-in-chief; Molly Garrison, managing editor; Amanda Leary, business manager; and Mackenzie Morris, art editor. Christina Bray, copy editor, and Rebecca Moore, layout editor, also served on the editorial board.
John Cooper Upper School is located at One John Cooper Drive in The Woodlands.
