Archer Literary Magazine Turns ‘Salt’ into Gold at Columbia Scholastic Press Association

The Columbia Scholastic Press Association awarded Archer’s literary arts magazine, Pillars of Salt, the gold medal for its Winter 2023 issue, “Liminal.” Pillars of Salt features the art and writing of Archer students, but perhaps more importantly, it gives the student editorial staff absolute ownership of procurement and production at every stage. Under the leadership of Co-Editors-in-Chief Coco Greene ’23, Zoe Griffin ’23, and Rachel Heyman ’23, students on the magazine staff conceptualized a theme, advertised to solicit submissions, designed the layout, and edited the content. Ms. Keelty, faculty adviser to the literary magazine, noted, “I'm thrilled that these Archer students have been recognized for their hard work and dedication. This was great news!”
Additionally, this week, the Pillars of Salt team launched their brand new Winter 2024 issue, “Nostalgia.” Congratulations to the entire editorial board and staff for putting out this exceptional piece of work. Please also keep an eye out for the Spring 2024 issue that will be released soon, both digitally and in print.
