About the Salamander

The Salamander (ISSN 2161-2846) is published annually in the spring semester of the academic year by the Literary and Graphic Arts Society at Le Moyne College in Syracuse, New York.

The 2011 print issue was published without an ISSN because the number was not issued in time for printing. However, the ISSN applies to current and all past issues.

The journal is financed by Le Moyne College’s Organizational Finance Review Committee and is distributed free of charge. No formal subscription is available, though copies of the most recently published issue may be mailed to interested parties depending on availability. Availability and mailing costs will be discussed at time of request.

The purpose of the Literary and Graphic Arts Society is to encourage literary and artistic creativity in the Le Moyne community and to publish outstanding student work in The Salamander. Submissions are usually solicited towards the end of the fall semester and start of the spring semester, depending on the editorial board’s preference. Short stories, poems, manuscripts, non-fiction essays, photos and artwork are solicited for publication.

The Salamander was first published in 1975 with no volume number. Volume I was published in 1976.

Electronic submissions are preferred and are only accepted in response to the call for submissions, issued annually by the journal’s editorial board. Submission guidelines are subject to change annually, based on editors’ preferences.

The Salamander is an independent journal housed in Le Moyne College’s Creative Writing Program. The editorial board normally serves for one academic year (September to May). All editorial positions are volunteered.
