Agate Literary & Arts Magazine

For over 50 years, SUNY Delhi students, faculty, and staff have had the opportunity to publish their writing and artwork in Agate, SUNY Delhi’s literary and arts magazine. At various times, the publication has been produced by faculty editors, student editors, and/or participants in SUNY Delhi’s English 205: Creative Writing course. 

Agate is usually published annually, both electronically and in print, at the end of the spring semester. Submissions are typically due late in the fall or early in the spring semester. Specific announcements regarding submission deadlines are provided through Delhi Today.
