About Us

Periaktoi Art & Literary Journal

The first issue of Periaktoi was published in 1966, and every year since that time its student editors have worked hard to showcase original photography, poetry, short stories and art through this exceptionally beautiful publication. 

Our Mission

Periaktoi's mission is to produce a journal of art and literature that reflects the diversity of experience and inspiring talent present in the Baylor community. Art and literature provide unique value to our community and serve as a vehicle for expressing the inexpressible, for exploring human experience in all its varied dimensions. In recognition of this value, Periaktoi seeks to promote access and expand interest in the arts at Baylor, while providing a forum for artists, musicians and writers to showcase their work to the broader community.


What's a Periaktoi?

A periaktoi is a three-sided revolving apparatus painted with scenery and used at each side of the stage in ancient Greek theaters
