Salamander is a literary organization that publishes a biannual magazine of poetry, fiction, creative nonfiction, and works in translation. It was founded in 1992 and aims to publish work by writers deserving of a wider audience at any stage in their careers as well as to focus intentionally on inclusivity and outreach to marginalized writers. Work from the magazine has been reprinted and anthologized in The Best American Short Stories, The O. Henry Prize Stories, The Best American Mystery and Suspense, The Best American Poetry, The Pushcart Prize Anthology, New Stories from the Midwest, The Best Small Fictions, and elsewhere.

Salamander came to Suffolk University in the fall of 2005 and receives ongoing support from the University. Housed in and published from Suffolk’s English Department at 73 Tremont Street in Boston, it is distributed internationally. Its annual fiction contest, judged by prominent short story writers and novelists, began in 2010.

In addition to its support from Suffolk University, Salamander has received grants from the National Endowment for the Arts, the Massachusetts Cultural Council, the Council for Literary Magazines and Presses, Bradford College, and the Brookline Council on the Arts and Humanities.
