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 USA. 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 and Fiction submissions are accepted on an irregular basis. See website for current status.
Tips From the Editor
Fiction in Calliope should entertain our readers, most of whom are writers or aspiring writers. Calliope is open to any genre of short fiction, including science fiction, fantasy, horror, mystery, and most sub-genres. Mixed genre stories and experimental forms are also welcome. Mainstream/literary stories will be considered if in some way they are out of the ordinary. Humor and satire are greatly appreciated. Editorial focus is on originality, characterization, emotional content, and imagery. Sex, gore, and strong language, while not forbidden, must be used with discretion and be an integral part of the story. Take chances; challenge the readership but don’t, in the process, forget to tell a good story.
