Support Agora – The Belmont Abbey College Art and Literary Journal
Agora is Belmont Abbey College’s award-winning student art and literary journal published yearly during the spring. A call for poetry, short fiction, graphic art, and photography submissions goes out yearly to the entire Belmont Abbey community. A student board of editors decides which works will be published. Prizes are awarded for the best submission in the categories of written work (poetry and stories) and art (graphic art and photography). Agora’s student editors determine the winners. The Agora staff also holds several “Poetry, Song, and Story Evenings” open to the entire Belmont Abbey community to come and share favorite or original poems, stories, and songs throughout the year.
The Agora literary and art journal has been submitted to the North Carolina College Media Association for the last ten years to be entered into statewide college media contests. Agora is judged among other literary journals submitted by North Carolina colleges and universities of 6,500 and fewer students. The Agora literary and art journal has won many awards over the years, including first prizes for poetry and fiction, third place for best-of-show, and many honorable mentions.
