Dear Readers –
We are off-campus and short-staffed so please be patient with orders you place – they will take longer than usual to fufill.
We will not be able to continue to receive unsolicited submissions and will hope to enter a reading period again in February 2021.
Our Spring-Summer issue, which we hoped to send to the printer in the next week or so, will be delayed at least until the summer .
We will update these notices when we have a clearer sense of what’s ahead and remind you that there is a great deal of work from Salmagundi past and present to read on this website. We will also be posting as often as we can on Instagram (salmagundimag) and Facebook (Salmagundi Magazine) and would be gratified if you could find us there in this virtual and remote circumstance.
Thank you for your support and continued interest in the magazine.
