Calliope, a literary and artistic journal

Calliope is a literary and artistic journal that offers a great opportunity for students to get published and share their creative work with fellow students, faculty, and potential employers. Originally founded at Armstrong over 30 years ago, Calliope showcases the best that our student’s literary and artistic minds have to offer.

Are you a writer or an artist? Submit your original work(s) of fiction, creative non-fiction, poetry, art or photography for your chance to be published in the literary and artistic journal Calliope. All entries will be reviewed by a group of your peers and considered for publication.
