English Students Take their Pens to the CisternYard

CisternYard Media
In recent semesters, CisternYard Media–the College’s media conglomerate, rebranded in 2011-12–has taken off, receiving accolades for student-run media. It’s no surprise that many English majors are drawn to the Yard, contributing their writing and editing skills to articles on everything from indie-punk bands to art exhibits to campus social life and politics.  Christina D’Antoni (’14 CW Concentrator in Fiction) writes a frequent column “The Frugual Foodie” hightlighting local eateries with top-notch food that won’t break your piggy bank. D’Antoni also wrote a lovely feature on Margaret Bradham Thornton’s fiction reading from back in September.

Check out these other CisternYard features on literature-related topics:
Sam Posthuma (’15 English) on the Flannery O’Connor Celebration, with music by the Harrows
Chelsea Anderson (Communications) on English instructor Kelly Owen’s debut novel, The College Chronicles: Freshman Milestones
Justine Hall (Arts Management) on Banned Books Week
Jessica Wilkinson (undecided) on a Banned Books Week event

For students who hope to see their words in print there’s also Miscellany, the student literary journal, a scion of CisternYard Media. Under the direction of this year’s Editor-in-Chief, Dylan Hopper (’16 English), Miscellany publishes poetry, fiction, and visual art from College of Charleston students.
