:Lexicon Magazine


As Duquesne University's journal of arts and literature, :Lexicon is a student-run publication built to celebrate and encourage the arts and artists of Duquesne.

Having grown out of Duquesne's earlier journal, The Spiritan, :Lexicon has appeared lexicon party pic1each fall and spring semester since the fall of 2005. Through publishing the poetry, prose, drama, music, and visual art of Duquesne faculty, students, and alumni, :Lexicon promotes the arts through quality publications that showcase the vibrant spirit and talent of the extended Duquesne community.

:Lexicon's office is located on the sixth floor of College Hall, and the staff is composed of undergraduate and graduate students from across the university.

A limited number of issues are available each semester. Release parties are held at the end of each semester, and copies are then distributed around campus. Back-issues are available for reading at Gumberg Library, and a limited number of some issues are still available if you wish to contact the :Lexicon staff for interest in a given issue.
