Editorial Focus

Calliope is published by the Writers’ Special Interest Group (SIG) of American Mensa, Ltd. It is published quarterly with a circulation that spans nearly every state in the U.S. Calliope is essentially a writer’s workshop by mail, providing a forum where writers can exchange ideas, learn more about the craft, and see their work in print. New writers are always welcome. Mensa membership is not required to subscribe or to submit works for publication. Poetry submissions are always welcome. Fiction submissions are accepted on an irregular basis.
