Philomel: The Philo Journal

Philomel is a non-profit journal for the arts, founded in 1981 and published throughout the year. We seek literary essays, short fiction, epic poetry, original artwork or photography. Submissions should engage with the theme of the issue, which is deliberately chosen to permit a plurality of interpretations. Past themes can be found below. The magazine is intended for free distribution around the campus of the University of Pennsylvania, and among current and alumni members of the Philomathean Society.
