Today, just one week after the one month anniversary of The Blazer‘s official website launch, we are happy to announce the return and modernization of yet another of Flushing’s former publications, Pegasus. Offering completely original, student-created content, Pegasus delighted readers with poems, comics, stories, essays, paintings, and many other forms of creative writing and art, but ultimately met their demise when they struggled to get funding through ad sales. Now, The Blazer is taking Pegasus under their wing, offering students one definitive outlet through which they can publish their work for the Flushing community to see.

“I started Pegasus in 1978,” said Ellie Sharrow, Founder and former Advisor for Pegasus. “Named it because Pegasus was the Greek god of poetry and creativity. Plus I thought a winged horse would make a cool cover drawing. Over the years the best artist would stake claim to designing the cover. Once it was ephemeral and ghostly. Another year the horse was malevolent and diabolical. Another year it looked mechanical and robotic. Another muscular and powerful. Another like a carousel horse. The name definitely worked because it was interpreted so many ways.”
