About the helix

The Helix is an online-based literary magazine run by the students at Central Connecticut State University. Since 1977, we’ve welcomed submissions in art, poetry, fiction, and non-fiction. We publish featured pieces weekly, seasonal issues triannually, and an annual issue for print.

Mission Statement

The Helix seeks to shed a light on the many different literary avenues of the world. We publish writers who have previously gone unnoticed, or unpublished before. We focus on the editorial process and promote professionalism, while taking the evolution of society and culture into consideration.
