David Gravolet, an editor of the recently recognized 2017 edition of Calliope, speaks at the second meeting of 2018.

The 2017 edition of the Calliope, Jesuit’s arts and literary magazine, was recently awarded a rating of “Excellent” by the NCTE Program to Recognize Excellence in Student Literary Magazines, placing it in the top three in Louisiana.  Congratulations to last year’s staff and especially to editors Sam Guillory, Robert Cerise, David Gravolet, and John Howell.


Mr. Chris Bowes and Mr. Gary Wyss, English teachers and Calliope moderators, listen to student presentations during the Calliope‘s election meeting, where the group selects their upcoming editors.

Furthermore, Calliope is accepting submissions for the 2018 edition.  Visual art, photography, fiction, poetry, and essays can be brought or emailed to English teachers Mr. Gary Wyss or Mr. Chris Bowes, the moderators of Calliope. Between Feb. 19 (submission deadline) and April 18 (publication date), the student committees (Art, Prose, Poetry) will be reading/viewing all submissions in their categories and turning in their judging results to the three sub-editors.  The editors (Ethan Erhardt, poetry; Robert Cerise, prose; Ben Schaubhut, art) will compile the results and present them, at an editors’ meeting, to the General Editor (John Howell) and the moderators. Howell will then be tasked with making final decisions on the contents of the magazine and with laying out those contents.  A prize-winner will be named in each category.

The Calliope is distributed free to every member of the student body and faculty. Students can see the flier posted in their homerooms for more information.
