ECU Literary Magazine Rebel named a Pacemaker Award Finalist

East Carolina University’s student-run literary magazine, Rebel, has been named one of seven finalists for the Associated Collegiate Press Pacemaker award, 4-year literary magazine category.


Since 1927, the Pacemaker has been the highest honor available to ACP members and still today is considered one of the most prestigious awards in collegiate media. Being a nominee signifies Rebel as one of the top eight literary magazines in the country. Rebel won the Pacemaker Award in 2009.

Rebel 53 is a finalist for the award for its general excellence in 2010-2011. The Rebel 53 staff includes 2011 ECU graduate Anna Vaughn Creech as the editor and staff members Rich Griffis, JoEllen Pollard and Alex Watson, all graphic design majors. Graphic design faculty members Craig Malmrose and Gunnar Swanson and student media director Paul Isom were advisers. Rebel is a unit of the office of Student Media.

The other finalists in the four-year literary magazine category, selected by professional journalists from Quintessence Publishing Co., include student-run magazines from Metropolitan State College of Denver, Elmhurst College, Bridgewater State University, Elon University, North Carolina State University, and North Greenville University in South Carolina.

The winners will be announced at the 90th Annual ACP/College Media Advisers National College Media Convention Oct. 29 in Orlando, Fla., in front of more than 2,500 college students involved in student media.

In addition to Rebel, East Carolina University’s office of Student Media oversees the production of ECU’s student-run multicultural publication, Expressions; radio station WZMB-FM; Campus 31 TV; ECU’s student-run yearbook, Buccaneer; and student-run newspaper, The East Carolinian.

The Associated Collegiate Press is a nonprofit education membership association and a division of the National Scholastic Press Association. The ACP has had college members since its inception in 1921 and is the largest and oldest membership organization for college student media in the United State
