The Portrait Literary Arts Magazine is the student run and student edited cultural magazine at Buffalo State University and all of the works in the magazine are produced by our talented student body.  Portrait comes out digitally at the end of the Fall Semester and both digitally and in print at the conclusion of the Spring Semester each year.  Students who are interested in joining the Portrait Staff and learning how a magazine is put together can register for English 171 (Portrait Magazine Editing and Production).  We are currently taking submissions for the Spring 2024 edition and students can submit their work by emailing it to portrait@buffalostate.edu for review.  Cheers and we hope that you enjoy the magazine!
