Pathos Literary Magazine is a creative publication through Portland State University. We are staffed entirely by students and publish exclusively student work in three issues per year.
At Pathos, we’re all students. We understand firsthand the power of learning and growth that comes with each new opportunity. Through our publication, we seek to be a manifestation of what goes on here at Portland State University and a bridge to the greater artistic community.
We look for diverse, cultured, and provocative works that showcase the vibrancy of our campus. We want expressions rooted in the experience of attending an amazing university in the heart of the city.
Students, poets, writers, and artists of all sorts have filled our pages since 2006, but we need your help to continue. Visit our SUBMIT page to see how you can submit your work.
