Calliope 2014, Opia: Revealing the I

 

Pronounced Kuh-Lie-Oh-Pea, the magazine is named for the muse of heroic poetry in Greek mythology and is Pacific’s student literary and arts journal. First published in the spring of 1970, Calliope has since woven itself into Pacific’s literary and art fabric. It features original art, poetry, prose, fiction, and essays created by Pacific’s students and juried by the student editorial staff for final publication.

Previous literary publications that served as inspiration for Calliope were The Pharos, an annual published from 1893–1912 and The Hieroglyph from 1931–1933. The cover of the first issue of Calliope is the only one not illustrated with artwork produced by a Pacific student, instead featuring a copy of an illustration by Art Nouveau artist, Alphonse Mucha. Some issues have focused exclusively on specific genres such as fiction or poetry or were designed around a theme. The 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2013  editions have received national attention by winning Apex Awards for Publication Excellence.

Calliope continues as a vehicle of self-expression and creativity for Pacific students, and each issue reflects the talent of the students who contribute to it. Financial support comes from a variety of departments, organizations, and individuals and we all benefit from their continued generosity.

Visual and literary artworks produced by students are juried for inclusion 
in the publication by a student editorial staff. A student design staff subsequently organizes this content into a coherent magazine and shepherds it through the printing process.

  2. Do you have a copy of the 1973 Calliope? Not the most beautiful edition ever made, but we kept it alive in spite of the ASUOP cutting the funding to close to zero. It ended up being a very handmade edition that year, we hoped to keep the magazine alive so students in subsequent years would still have that outlet. It looks like we succeeded!

      Philip, sorry I do not have a copy of the 73 edition. Possibly the library does but unfortunately I have none before those you see on the website. Who was the faculty advisor then?

      Thanks for keeping it alive.

what do you think?
