  • Statement
    The Chautauqua philosophy has always been that everyday life should integrate leisure, education, fine arts, and spirituality. Educational pursuit and artistic enrichment should not be confined to separate spaces or designated hours. Spirituality is not defined and shared only within sacred walls or books of prayer. The Chautauqua way of life encompasses all of the ways we enrich our lives: learning on vacation, leisure in work, and passion for art and life in all activities. Chautauqua is an annual publication—now on our twelfth issue—and readers will always find a season between its covers. In keeping with the mission of Chautauqua Institution, the journal is organized into four sections: life of the spirit, life in art, life lessons, and life at leisure. In an effort to recognize the younger members of our community, we have added a Young Voices section to the journal. Production is a joint effort. In 2007, the Writers’ Center and Department of Education at Chautauqua Institution partnered with the Department of Creative Writing at the University of North Carolina Wilmington. Each year a group of graduate and undergraduate students work as members of the editorial team. They read and discuss submissions, fact check and edit, search for art, and participate in the artistic process of building a book. The new issue of Chautauqua is released each year in June as the summer season begins.
