So sorry to hear this. I had an article in Calliope and his wife was the editor I worked with.

I was curious why the article says, "The Baker family continues to edit Calliope (now called Dig Magazine)."

Dig and Calliope are two distinct magazines as far as I know. Am I wrong about this?

As of September 2014, Calliope no longer exists as a separate magazine. it has been folded into Dig, which is now bigger and is called Dig Into History. Rosalie Baker is still the editor.

We will all miss Charlie...

Thank you, Marcia, for the update. The submission guidelines pages don't yet reflect the changes, so that's why I was confused.
