The publication received a Gold Award in Periodical Staff Writing for a collection of five stories: “Out of This Art World” and “An Artful Friendship” by Editor Maria Henson (’82); “Oh, Those Lilting Banshees: Where Are They (Funny) Now?” and “Ted Gellar-Goad and the Secret of the Sphinx” by Managing Editor Cherin C. Poovey (P ’08); and “The Thing He Carried” by Senior Editor Kerry M. King (’85).
“Wake Forest submitted a diverse and thoroughly entertaining set of stories. From painting buddies in Winston-Salem to art on the Texas prairie, each entry delivered a strong, unique voice and command of the material,” wrote the judges. “Writing was crisp and informative. Even more importantly, the committee could delineate a direct connection between the subject matter and the mission of Wake Forest.”
The magazine staff, including Deputy Editor Janet Williamson (P ’00, ’03), also received a Bronze Award for General Interest Magazines over 75,000 circulation.
