Creative Writing: Literary Magazines (primarily print)

Literary Magazines (primarily print) maintains a guide to print and online literary magazines, and a list of twitter feeds maintained by these publications.  Both the guide and the twitter list are worth reviewing:

Literary magazines that publish mostly in print. For a guide to what kinds of submissions are accepted by these publications, see the Poets & Writers Literary Magazines index.


The latest issues of some of these magazines will be on the ground floor of King in the New Periodicals Section.  Other issues can be found on the ground floor of King in the Instructional Materials Center, in the print periodicals compact shelving.  Some older periodicals will be in the SW Depository and can be requested.
