Calliope Accepting Submissions for 2017
Who is Calliope? In case you are not familiar with Greek mythology, Calliope is a daughter of Zeus and one of the nine muses. Calliope once represented for heroic poetry and the arts, and at Pacific, Calliope lives on through the university’s literary and visual arts magazine of the same name.
Calliope was first published in the spring semester of 1970 under the mentorship of English professor William Kollock and showcased the artistic talent of Pacific students. Today, Calliope is sponsored by the Pacific Humanities Center and students from the Departments of English and Art & Graphic Design. Student editors operate under the mentorship of professors Brett DeBoer and Courtney Lehmann. Since 2009, Calliope has one the Apex Award for Publication Excellence several times.
Continuing years of tradition, Calliope accepts both literary works and works of visual arts created by Pacific students. Students can submit poetry, short stories, photographs, paintings, and other forms of art to firstname.lastname@example.org by March 1, for a chance to be published in this years issue of Calliope. There is currently no theme, so students can submit whatever they created and are interested in seeing published. And if students think their work is worth submitting, submit anyway! Art is meant to be shared and discussed.
