Each year, students produce a professional-grade journal highlighting the highest quality art, literature, film, and music created at Edinboro University. Volunteering on the journal’s staff gives students the opportunity to engage in interdisciplinary creative endeavor as they jury, edit, and market work conceived, designed, and produced by their peers. This “by students, for students” approach promotes creativity and professional application in the arts. Chimera invites participation from students of all academic backgrounds, placing no limits on subject, style, or form. The journal has won numerous design awards including the 2005 National Program Directors’ Prize for Undergraduate Literary Magazines from AWP’s annual Writers Conference.
