The Agora name comes from the ancient Greek agora, the marketplace where citizens gathered to share ideas.
PLATO's The Agora is created by and published for members, and made available to the wider Dane County community through libraries, senior centers, retirement centers, and our website. The first volume of The Agora was published in 2011 and the next (Vol. 7) will be available later in 2021.
The submission period for the 2021 publication is now closed. Thank you to all the PLATO writers and visual artists who offered their work for consideration!
