SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. (AP) - An upstate New York college is hosting a conference to mark the 50th anniversary of the founding of a renowned magazine that has published the work of some of the world’s most prominent writers and poet.

The three-day conference underway at Skidmore College in Saratoga Springs celebrates the 1965 founding of Salmagundi by Robert Boyers, who launched the periodical while on leave from graduate school at New York University.

Boyers moved to Skidmore four years later and has published Salmagundi at the private liberal arts college ever since.

The quarterly magazine’s roster of award-winning contributors has included Saul Bellow, Nadine Gordimer, Joyce Carol Oates, Susan Sontag and Russell Banks.

An exhibit of Salmagundi memorabilia is currently on display in the lobby of Skidmore’s Tang Museum.
