About Calliope

East Stroudsburg University students have taken the annual Calliope Literary Magazine online.

Using this site, students and faculty can actively read, submit, and comment on the works of their peers. Students from Professor Broun’s Electronic Creative Writing class and the Calliope staff are the creative minds behind the electronic version of Calliope. Submissions are sent to editors and carefully sifted through. Our staff includes editors for poetry, fiction, creative non-fiction, art, and animation to create this literary website.

All East Stroudsburg University students are encouraged to submit their work. This site has allowed students to take their talents from traditional pen and paper this year, and bring their stories to life. Electronic pieces using blog, animation, and website software have allowed for interactive literature to join Calliope. Using technology allows creative works by talented students to have sound, graphics, and video, making their pieces increasingly immersive.

Submitting pieces to our magazine is a wonderful opportunity for students to showcase their work. They will be able to see comments and replies from readers and potentially create a following for themselves and their work. Being part of a university literary magazine is a critical outlet for writers to connect with each other, gain constructive criticism, and creative experience as writers. The online literary magazine also gives ESU students a chance to be involved constantly without weekly meetings.

Feel free to submit your work here.
