Where there’s a university, there’s certain to be literacy lectured about and studied, and therefore majors of English and literature.
We, here at ESU, have something special for the connoisseurs of authors, poets, photographers and painters as well.
It’s called Calliope, and it is ESU’s proud and highly reputable magazine of literature and visual arts.
I am a member of Calliope myself, and am able to say that thanks to the calliope, many of my pieces of photography and poetry shall be published for the first time anywhere, and this is certainly a great starting point for many aspiring artists as well.
The magazine is published annually in the spring of each academic year, and we accept and review submissions of poetry, fiction, creative non-fiction, artwork and photography.
The submissions cover a wide range of subjects and genres, displaying the diverse interests of many future authors from our university.
From still life, to athletic and nature photos, photos of far away places and glimpses back in time, compelling romantic fiction, to riveting, absorbing non-fiction, Calliope contains the jack-of-all-trades of art for you and me.
If you’re interested in meeting us in person, feel free to drop by any Tuesday at 2 p.m. in Stroud Hall 314.
We’ll be more than happy to greet you, especially if you’re aspiring to become a member!
All submissions must be in line with the following requirements: they must be .doc format, double-spaced, titled, contain a cover letter and email address and can be no more in number than five at a time.
Please submit your work to firstname.lastname@example.org, and we’ll be more than glad to take it in and review your work, and even offer consultation to improve upon it also as well perhaps, to put you on the right track to your hopes of achieving artists and literary recognition after you graduate from ESU!
So get your typewrit…sorry, I mean…Microsoft Word out and ready to write!
