Elm Leaves Journal is Buffalo State's historic literary and arts journal. In production since 1948, Elm Leaves Journal has been administered, edited and produced by students at Buffalo State College. You can view the covers of our historic issues below.
In 2013, after a brief hiatus, Elm Leaves Journal was re-imagined as ELJ, a cutting edge, national literary journal. The 2013 edition was the first that published writers outside of the Buffalo State community, that that was printed by a professional publisher. ELJ (Elm Leaves Journal) is published through the cooperation of the Writing Major and the School of Arts and Humanities.
The journal is edited by Pushcart Prize-winning author Kim Chinquee, Associate Professor of English, and co-director of the Writing Major. ELJ is produced, in part, through the work of students in ENG 357, Literary Publishing. In this course, Professor Chinquee takes the students through the process of producing the journal, from layout to selection to editing. If you would like more information on ELJ, or would like to order a copy of the journal, please contact Kim Chinquee.
