Online Literary Magazines

Adirondack Review
"Is an independent on-line quarterly of literature and the arts published by Black Lawrence Press. It is dedicated to publishing quality poetry, fiction, artwork, and photography, as well as interviews, articles, book reviews, and film reviews. TAR was established in the spring of 2000, with its first issue appearing that summer."

Barcelona Review
"The Web's first electronic review of international, contemporary cutting-edge fiction in English/Spanish/Catalan multilingual format. (Original texts of other languages are presented along with English and Spanish translations as available. We now also have our fourth French translation from the English and plan to have more in the future.)"

Barefoot Muse
"A journal of formal& metrical verse."

"Beyond simple obvious criteria such as 'well written in a variety of technical senses,' and 'original in terms of subject and style,' excellent writing challenges traditions in profound ways, and is radical insofar as it is aware of its own origins in tradition and seeks to expand the boundaries of the realm of discourse of which it is a part. The editors are committed to seeking out such writing and to encouraging and challenging writers to produce it."

"Bookslut is a monthly web magazine and daily blog dedicated to those who love to read. We provide a constant supply of news, reviews, commentary, insight, and more than occasional opinions."

Carve Magazine
"Our goal is to publish the finest fiction in the world. Knowing that the market for literary fiction is adversely affected by the high cost of printing, we seek to combine the dignity and beauty of printed literary magazines with the cost effectiveness, efficiency, and accessibility of web publication."

"Is a litzine dedicated to our diverse tastes, but makes occasional forays into film, music and art as we see fit."

"A quarterly World Wide Web journal devoted to showcasing the best writing on the web, regardless of genre. 'Literary' and 'genre' work appear side-by-side in each issue, along with pieces that blur the distinctions between such categories."

ForeWord Magazine
"Reviews of good books independently published. We work toward making the publishing community and world of readers a richer place with the discovery of great books through reviews and feature stories exclusively showcasing independent presses."

"The online portfolio of
good writing whether fiction, travel, comment or lifestyles. Hackwriters is a free internet magazine devoted to interesting writing, on any subject. It is completely independent and receives no money for advertising or opinion. It has no bias."

Istanbul Literature Review
Fiction, Poetry, Nonfiction

The name is deceptive; this is far more than an author's individual site. Many other authors are (quite thoroughly) showcased; also contains reviews, a gallery, and lists c
ontests and events. As the homepage states: "Regular pick of the best new writing & stuff."

Mezzo Cammin
"A web journal devoted to formal poetry by women. Publishing twice a year, Mezzo Cammin features poems in form by contemporary women writers; reviews of new books by and about women poets who work in form; and essays."

"We have created Nerve because we think sex is beautiful and absurd, remarkably fun and reliably trauma-inducing. In short, it is a subject in need of a fearless, intelligent forum for both genders."

New York Review of Books Electronic Edition
"The New York Review began during the New York publishing strike of 1963, when the present
editors, Robert Silvers and Barbara Epstein, and their friends, decided to create a new kind of magazine—one in which the most interesting and qualified minds of our time would discuss current books and issues in depth."

The Pedestal Magazine
"Is the vision of published writer and entrepreneur John Amen. Mr. Amen’s mission for the magazine is to publish a premier literary journal, exclusively online, featuring new and established writers and visual artists. Many bimonthly issues include in-depth interviews with a featured writer and visual artist, along with examples of their work, as well as poetry, fiction, and non-fiction from writers around the world."

ShatterColors Press
Our fledgling press launches its first title, 5/09.

Shit Creek Review
Fiction, Poetry, Nonfiction

"Literary fiction, with both humorous and dark erotic content. Emotion saturated tales that bring about a surge in the bloodstream, shivers in the spine, swells of laughter, or any combination thereof."

Small Spiral Notebook
"Since its launch in 2001, Small Spiral Notebook has attracted a loyal readership for our poetry, fiction, and creative nonfiction – not to mention for our interviews with authors such as Aimee Bender, Phillip Gourevitch, Sara Gruen, Roxana Robinson, Kate Braverman, Nicole Krauss, and Jonathan Ames, as well as many debut authors and poets."

Sonnet Central
"An archive of English sonnets, commentary, and relevant web links and a forum for poets to share and discuss their own work."

Stickman Review
"An online literary journal."

"Since 1996, 2River has been a site of poetry, art, and theory, quarterly publishing The 2River View and occasionally publishing individual authors in the 2River Chapbook Series, and, more recently, podcasting poems and commentary from Muddy Bank, the 2River blog. All publications first appear on-line and afterwards in print."

Word Riot
"First opened shop in March 2002 as the literary section of a now defunct on-line music magazine, Communication Breakdown. Each month we provide readers with book reviews, author interviews, and, most importantly, writing from some of the best and brightest making waves on the literary scene."

Underground Voices Magazine

Yankee Independent
Magazine of Aspiration, Innovation, and Success
