CALYX, A Journal of Art and Literature by Women

A forum for women’s creative work—including work by women of color, lesbian and queer women, young women, old women—CALYX Journal breaks new ground. Each issue is packed with new poetry, short stories, full-color artwork, photography, essays, and reviews.

CALYX Journal is known for discovering important writers, such as Julia Alvarez, Paula Gunn Allen, Olga Broumas, Natalie Goldberg, Barbara Kingsolver, and Sharon Olds, among the more than 4,000 writers published during our first 35 years. CALYX was the first to publish the artwork of Frida Kahlo in color in the U.S. In 1980 CALYX also featured work by the Nobel Laureate poet Wislawa Szymborska--the first English translations of her work published in the U.S.

CALYX is the recipient of the Oregon Governor’s Arts Award, the Stanley H. Holbrook Award from Oregon Literary Arts, Pushcart Prizes, and American Literary Magazine Awards, among others.

CALYX holds a special place in my heart…Without them, we would lose much more than feminist thought – we would lose color and diversity, poetry, the outside chance, the underdog’s story, the heretical questions, the answers we need.”
Barbara Kingsolver
CALYX stands out from the crowd.” “Thank you for all your good and beautiful work.”
The Utne Reader Gloria Steinem
