7-8th issue. Special: "Literature"

Enriching the art oriented topics, the holiday double-issue of "En Volo" is dedicated to the literary tradition of Magnesia. In this anthology a total of 102 authors and poets are presented, through the editorial care of the Volos-native researcher and author Giorgos Panagiotou.

The anthology is accompanied by a brief biography guide. The aim of this special issue is to present sample writings of the intellectual production of the area, and to attract -as with every special- new contributions in the hope of achieving greater plurality.

The remaining material draws its topics from events of national and international interest. Thus the Society column depicts the children of Ethiopia by presenting the introductory visit and the registration of problems by the organization "New Earth". In Sport, Nikos Maggitsis explains the advantages of outdoor activity training, while in Education, a first mention is made of a program, the implementation of which began with the fall semester of 2002, that is stemming from the cooperation of the Municipality of Volos and Drury University.

In the Arts, the two recent major art exhibitions that took place in the area are presented, the one being the Averof Collection and the other being "The Spirit of Family", which was organized by the Skopelos Photography Center.

In Personalities, Euaggelos Prontzas renders the work and the life of the native of Volos Law Professor Nikolaos Pantazopoulou and presents the first-time publication of a study made by the professor in 1959.

Lastly, the two permanent pre-special columns include, as always, local topics: Memento is dedicated to the fountains of Makrinitsa, while Monuments to the Holy Monastery of Ano Xenia.
