The 2019 edition of Mount St. Mary’s University’s literary and arts magazine, Lighted Corners, was awarded a gold medal in the annual Columbia Scholastic Press Association (CSPA) competition. Lighted Corners has been a perennial winner in the CPSA competition over the past 12 years, securing a gold medal in 2008, 2012, 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2019 and a silver medal in 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2013. CPSA was established in 1925 to help improve student publications.

The award-winning Spring 2019 magazine showcases a thoughtfully published collection of creative nonfiction, fiction, fine arts, photography and poetry by nearly 30 Mount students, selected from among 300-plus submissions.

“This year’s magazine is a product of the passionate writers and artists on this campus, stemming from all fields of study,” Alba Sarria, C’21, wrote in her editor’s note. “Without their love for exploring our world, daring to make up their own, and crafting works as vibrant, nuanced, and eclectic as themselves, we wouldn’t have the wonderfully dark magazine you now hold in your hands.”
