Ateneo is a literary-art publication which includes creative writing from Belen Jesuit’s English and Creative Writing courses. Some of the photography and art work is created by the Studio Art classes. Submissions are also accepted from the student body. Currently editors and staff are recruited from the Creative Writing course. The editorial staff meets outside of class to complete the publication. Ateneo’s purpose is to create a medium in which students and staff can showcase their varying talents. The Spanish word “Ateneo” alludes to the artistic and intellectual tradition of ancient Athens.
