South’s Script magazine received national recognition and honors for their 2017 edition. 

The campus’ literary magazine won first place for Best Magazine in the Southwestern Region in the Community College Humanities Association literary magazine competition, a big honor, according to Logen Cure, South English instructor and faculty editor for Script. 

“The 2017 editorial staff experienced our highest number of student submissions to date thanks to their promotional efforts. This created fierce competition and resulted in a truly gorgeous publication,” she said. 

They also were able to feature some paired writing and visual art as a result of a collaboration between creative writing and visual art students, Cure said. 

“South Campus students are immensely talented, and it is an honor to celebrate their hard work and accomplishments,” she said. 

Two individual contributors also won in individual categories. South student Jeremy Avery won first place in music for his song “Dig it Out,” and Kimberly deLeon won third place in fiction for her short story “The Collector.” 

“We are very proud,” Cure said.
