Congratulations to Griffith Cork’s third-year Journalism students whose first magazine issue was published at the end of October.
It was an extraordinary feat as students raised money for the publication through advertising, secured sponsorship from the Dragon of Shandon Festival (an annual community and festival parade that takes place in Cork), and wrote and produced the content in just a few weeks.
“It was both challenging and rewarding to put together our first issue of The Lantern magazine. It really brought home the importance of deadlines, and as a student journalist it was very useful to gain experience of financing, publishing and distributing a magazine. Our advertisers were all local businesses in Cork with a strong inclination towards supporting creative endeavors, and we were fortunate in getting the support that we did.”
