CNU Student-Run Lookout: A Creative Nonfiction Magazine & More

(Newport News, Va.) - Lookout  is a creative non-fiction writing magazine featuring photography and film from CNU journalism students, and is available online at www.cnu.edu/lookout.  Hosted by CNU’s Department of English, the magazine is edited by journalism professor Dr. Terry Lee.

The latest issue includes:

“Being  There,” a profile of the Reverend George Chioros, pastor of St. Constantine & Helen Greek Orthodox Church in Newport News;

“Brother Nate,” a profile of full-time contractor and part-time preacher Nathan Magnusen, and his  decision to start preaching in the public spaces on the CNU campus and in the surrounding community after having seen a religious program on television;

“A Farming Utopia: Embracing Local-to-Local Agriculture,” on the imbalance of farm subsidies and how 60 percent of subsidies go to ten percent of the nation’s farmers.  The article also features Full Quiver Farm in Suffolk, Virginia, where food is produced without the use of antibiotics.

The new issue also features a story about how the tables were turned on writer James T. Hosack when he spent the semester reporting on the production of a play in his former high school.
