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.

"I've had it, Leroy! I'm done with the dirty laundry on the floor, I'm done with the poker games, and I'm done with you!" "Leave then, you psychopath! Nobody's forcing you to stay here!" "Good! Because I am so gone!"

The burning summer sun melted down our necks and fell into golden puddles of sweat at our bare feet. Dancing palms rustled in thunderous applause as we lifted our tired yet victorious fists through the muggy air.

The Car
Sam Crowell

"How much for the white van," he asked the eager, young salesman. The salesman's crisp black suit, surely a new purchase from Cooley's Department Store, gave him away as a new employee of Love's Used Treasures, a staple of South Side Chattanooga.

The Last Note
Sho Takiguchi

When the long talk with Kelly ended, she went to the kitchen for a cup of water. Mysteriously, she left a note “follow me if you care” as if she still hoped for the return of Jeff.

That was the last time Kelly saw Colleen—12:30AM.

The Power of Nostalgia
Eric Wu

I think of my parents who were so young, my friends who had been staying with me, and my dog that passed away a long time ago. I cherish the memories of my first home, my grandparents' old room, and the grocery store that was at the corner of the street when I was a little boy.
