ABOUT HOLY CROSS MAGAZINE Holy Cross Magazine is the College’s alumni quarterly publication that reaches all alumni, parents of current students and employees of the College. HCM includes intriguing profiles, make-you-think features, alumni news, exclusive photos and more. Editor Suzanne Morrissey writes the Behind the Zine blog for HCM. Assistant editor Pamela Reponen and designer Stephen Albano round out the magazine team.
WHY THE EDITOR IS BLOGGING “After 20 years in magazines, I’ve come to realize that the most interesting — and touching — stories are sometimes those that for various reasons never get published. This blog offers readers a little of the inside, behind-the-scenes ‘scoop’ at HCM. Plus, folks are often curious about how an issue comes together. With the blog, we can open that door and let everyone take a look. I also hope that blogging about how each issue comes together will encourage our readers to send us their own unique story ideas.”
WHAT SHE’S BLOGGING ABOUT “The fun things that happen as we put each issue together, the exciting things that pop up between magazines and the mundane things that border on the ridiculous and make us smile.”
