Sangam Literary Magazine features and represents works by established as well as emerging writers, irrespective of age, sex, race, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity, or national origin. In this way, Sangam, a Sanskrit term for joining together, is, in fact, a coming together for all.

Sangam publishes in the fall and spring of each academic year through the Department of Languages and Literature at Southern University and A&M College’s flagship campus in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. As Louisiana’s largest Historically Black College and University (HBCU), Southern University is located in a bend of the Mississippi River, a locale with important literary significance, most recently home to Louisiana’s Poet Laureate, John Smith, who is among its Baton Rouge campus faculty.
