Editorial Focus

Salmagundi is a quarterly of the Humanities and Social Sciences which is addressed to the “general” reader rather than to the academic specialist. Founded in 1965 and published since 1969 at Skidmore College, the magazine routinely publishes essays, reviews, interviews, fiction, poetry, regular columns, polemics, debates and symposia.

Tips From the Editor

We accept submissions by snail mail only, to the following address: 

Skidmore College
Salmagundi Magazine
815 N Broadway
Saratoga Springs, NY 12866

Salmagundi publishes fiction, personal essays, or cultural criticism of generally up to 12,000 words, and five or six poems at most, with no particular style preference. We do ask that you please read several issues of the magazine first, however, and that you only send us work which might conceivably belong in our pages.
