New Tricks is a literary magazine that began in 1992, when a small group of students, known as the Literary Stunt Dogs, started to gather and produce student work. It has since evolved into a larger pulication that includes not only poetry and prose, but also features photographs, digital art, and multimedia. New Tricks is now a product of the DSU chapter of Sigma Tau Delta, an international honor society. The Dakota State University Chapter of Sigma Tau Delta, Alpha Gamma Lambda, was established in th spring of 1993.
New Tricks inspires creativity across majors, accepting work campus-wide. The diversity of the medias accepted into the magazine allows for students, faculty, and staff alike to showcase their skills and publish their work.
