Interested in art and writing? Check out Calliope!

In ancient Greek mythology, Calliope was one of the nine muses, a daughter of Zeus who was an embodiment of epic poetry and the arts believed to be Homer’s inspiration in “The Iliad” and “The Odyssey.” At Pacific, Calliope still lives on in the form of the University’s literary and art magazine, named in the muse’s honor.
Pacific students who have an interest in writing and art can submit their work to Calliope for the chance to get published and for their fellow students to admire and enjoy.
Calliope is the product of the University’s Humanities Center, a collaboration between students from the English and Visual Arts Departments under the guidance of English professor Dr. Courtney Lehmann and visual arts professor Brett DeBoer.
Creative students email their work to the Calliope Student Editorial Teams, who then determine which works created by students will make it into the published issue.
From 2009-2013, Calliope won five national Apex Awards for Publication Excellence, so for a student to have their work published in the magazine is a big deal.
If you are a student interested in writing or art and you have a piece you wish to share with others, than definitely consider submitting. Literary submissions should be sent to, and visual arts submissions can be emailed to
Calliope accepts work from a variety of genres and mediums, including poems, short fiction, short scholarly essays, photography, drawings, digital art and so much more.
