The first issue, titled ? (stylized as The Staff Issue of ?) was published by the Boston University Literary Society, in association with Bostonia, another university magazine. Subsequent issues, although produced by the Literary Society, were released under the name Clarion.
In the beginning Clarion only published the writing of Boston University students, until 2008 when they expanded their purview beyond the campus and began accepting work from all writers regardless of any affiliation with the University.
In 2011, The Pen & Anvil Press, a Boston-based independent imprint associated with the Boston Poetry Union, began publishing Clarion.
Boston University Literary Society
The Boston University Literary Society was originally founded as Boston University Students for Literary Awareness in Fall 1997, under the leadership of Jennifer Herron. The original members intended to publish a magazine titled The View from a Window, though it was then renamed, becoming ? (and then Clarion) and ultimately released in Spring 1998.
In 2009, the Literary Society started Burn, a students-only showcase of edgier experimental writing, and in 2010 offered the editors of formerly independent publications, Back Bay Review (art criticism) and Pusteblume (literary translation,) a home under the Boston University Literary Society administration.
In addition to publications, the student members of the Literary Society organize a twice-annual Literary Fair and sponsor a weekly writers' workshop for members of the campus community.
