Agate Literary Magazine
Agate Online Archive 

Agate (ág-it): a fine-grained crystalline mineral that forms in cavities in volcanic rock. Agate is prized for its beautiful patterned colors, and its hardness makes it ideal for delicate carving.

Founded by professors Gaston (Gus) Pelletier and Luke Zilles, Agate has been providing a creative outlet for the SUNY Delhi community since 1977. Over the years we have proudly published the work of faculty, staff, and most importantly, the students of the College. Publication of Agate has also evolved into a democratic collaborative effort involving both faculty and student editors.

This Web page is a work in progress. Over time we hope to create an online archive that represents the entire history of the magazine.
