The Pequod is a biannual student-run publication that exhibits the creative work of Colby’s artists and writers. The magazine has been a major part of Colby’s Creative Writing program since 1968, though its organization and activities have evolved over the years. Faculty previously had a larger role both as contributors and editors and there was once collaboration with Mary-Low Coffeehouse to host live readings and displays of the artwork. Today the editors’ efforts to gather and share submissions to the magazine help inspire and reveal the creativity in Colby students.
The Pequod welcomes submissions from all Colby students, whether they be involved directly in Creative Writing or the Art Department or engage in creative work independently. Each semester a student panel selects magazine content from a large body of material that includes poetry, prose, drawing, painting, printmaking, and photography.
