Helicon Literary & Arts Magazine was the brainchild of three students in Mary Kinzie’s 1979 poetry sequence. Lisa Getter, Christina Calvit, and Michael Steele wanted to provide Northwestern with a regularly published literary magazine that could showcase the artistic work of the student body. Helicon began in and is affliated with Chapin, the Humanities Residential College, and is funded by the Office of Residential Academic Initiatives. The first issue appeared in the spring of 1980.
