Wor-Wic journal earns national honor

“Echoes and Visions,” the creative arts journal at Wor-Wic Community College, has earned a designation of “excellent” by the National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE).
 
This year, schools in 46 states and five countries nominated 375 student magazines from middle school, high school and higher education.
 
“To receive this award of excellence from the NCTE, a nationally respected organization, is truly an incredible achievement for our student artists, student editors and faculty advisors,” said Adam Tavel, professor of English. “I couldn't be prouder of ‘Echoes and Visions’ and its enduring legacy, as we have been fortunate to receive several honors over the past decade. May this vibrant tradition of creativity, artistry and community endure for many more decades to come.”
 
“Echoes and Visions” is issued annually to spotlight the literary and artistic talents of Wor-Wic students. Submissions are accepted from any current or former student. The publication has been recognized many times throughout its 35-year history, including a recent first-place award for the Eastern region in the Community College Humanities Association’s 2023 literary magazine competition.
 
The Recognizing Excellence in Art and Literary Magazines (REALM) contest publicly recognizes excellent literary magazines produced by students with the support of their teachers. REALM is designed to encourage all schools to develop literary magazines that celebrate the art and craft of writing. The NCTE is devoted to improving the teaching and learning of English and the language arts at all levels of education.
