Journal S/tick

S/tick is a lively new mag that appeared on the scene in April 2012. We aim to publish bright and touching work from both new and established authors. While work with a feminist consciousness that challenges the status quo and says things that are difficult to say may be hard to find a home for, it's exactly what we're looking for. S/tick provides a place for women and feminists to share their grief, anger, and joy.

Journal Salmagundi Magazine

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. It is widely regarded as one of the most influential intellectual quarterlies in the United States, and though it is often discussed as a “little magazine,” it is by no means predominantly belletristic or narrow in its purview or its audience.
