“The Leaflet,” a journal edited by Eastern Connecticut State University Education Professor Mark A. Fabrizi, has been named a recipient of the 2020 Affiliate Journal of Excellence Award by the National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE). Each year NCTE recognizes journals and their editors for representing excellence in their publications. This will be the 25th year of the award since its establishment in 1995. 

The winning journal must be a magazine-style publication (print or online) that provides information regarding English language arts education. Fabrizi, associate professor and assistant chair of the Education Department, has spent his career focused on English education. He is a former high school English teacher of 18 years, and now teaches at Eastern with a focus on English methods, literacy and education.

Journals in the running for the award are judged on physical appearance, content, layout and organization. The articles within the journal are judged on writing quality, coverage of important issues regarding the English education community, evidence of research, and variety of writing styles such as poetry and book reviews.

Each year the award winner is announced at the 2020 NCTE Annual Convention. This year the convention will take place virtually, with more than 400 sessions on a variety of topics, and a combination of live, scheduled and on-demand content. The official announcement will be hosted on Nov. 22 during the affiliate roundtable breakfast.
