‘Morning Glory’ Receives Honor

“Esperando la Llegada” by Carla Guzman ’08 is featured in the award-winning Morning Glory.

CLU’s literary arts magazine Morning Glory received the Associated Collegiate Press (ACP) All American Award with marks of distinction in all categories.

The ACP gave the 2007 magazine high marks in all five areas: concept, content, writing/editing, layout/design and photography/art/graphics/ typography.

One judge called the annual issue “exemplary” and commended the inclusion of a CD featuring original music and audio recordings of some of the magazine’s literary pieces. The glossy publication also features poetry, stories, photographs, paintings and multimedia images contributed by students, faculty, staff and alumni.

English professor emeritus J.T. Ledbetter started Morning Glory in 1971 and still contributes poetry to the magazine, which has received 25 All American Awards and is a member of ACP’s Hall of Fame. It received ACP’s highest award, the Pacemaker, in 1983.

English professor Joan Wines succeeded Ledbetter as faculty advisor in 1994 and initiated inclusion of a CD in 2002.
