Welcome to the home of Penn State’s Undergraduate Literary Magazine, Kalliope, a print journal published each spring  by a dedicated staff of undergraduate students at Penn State University Park.

The club meets regularly throughout the fall and spring semesters, first to form a community, then to solicit submissions of fiction, nonfiction, poetry, and art, then to form committees that will read and select pieces to publish in the annual print journal in the spring. If you’re interested in submitting your work, check out the “Submissions tab.” If you’re interested in joining the club, see “How to Join.”


A class offered for the first time in the fall 2016 semester at University Park, ENGL 209: “Literary Magazine Practicum,” has developed an online sister to Kalliope, called Klio Creative Arts Journal. Calls for submissions open at the start of the fall semester each year, and continue through mid-November. The course is offered each fall, and a new edition of Klio is published in December of each year.

For more information about the course, contact faculty member Alison Jaenicke (acj137@psu.edu).
