During the week of May 2, Cabrini will be putting out its spring edition of the Woodcrest Magazine. The magazine will be priced at $5 and will be available for anyone interested in reviewing the talents of students.

Students involved with the Woodcrest practicum and Non-fiction Writing for Publication, taught by Dr. Charles McCormick, will distribute the magazines at different areas on campus.

A few years ago, there was a Woodcrest Yearbook, which focused on the senior students of Cabrini College. There was also a journal known as the Cryptic, which presented various creative writing pieces, photography and artwork from the students at Cabrini.

There was not much involvement with the yearbook and the Cryptic when they were up and running, so as a result both publications were combined into a new, larger magazine, the current Woodcrest.

Dr. McCormick, Dr. Seth Frechie and Dr. Jerry Zurek of the English/communications department decided to add several classes to their curriculum to work on the writing and publication of the new magazine. In the fall, Frechie teaches Creative Writing for Publication, and in the spring, McCormick teaches Non-fiction Writing for Publication.

These classes require students to write various manuscripts of creative and non-fiction writing. The best stories then get chosen to appear in the Woodcrest Magazine for that particular semester. This spring, the magazine is focused on non-fiction manuscripts, artwork and photography.

There will be several non-fiction essays produced by Cabrini writers, as well as a piece of poetry, a collection of student artwork and photo essay.

The students have worked diligently to create this magazine. On April 23, there will be a reading in the Gryphon Caf
