RANKING OF LITERARY MAGAZINES
This ranking of literary magazines is based on their number of Twitter followers – an easily comparable and widely available indicator of digital reach. To find out more about the pros and cons of this ranking, please check out my guest blog on Trish Hopkinson's site.
This started as a personal project to guide my own submissions. The ranking is still work in progress and will be regularly updated. At the moment, I only include generalist journals - so no genre, no journals dedicated exclusively to non-fiction or poetry, and no journals that cater for specific groups only. I'm hoping to address this in the future - but please bear with me (I'm a one-man band...)
You can support this project in a number of ways:
(1) By subscribing to my newsletter below or following me on Twitter @brecht_dp.
(2) By letting me know about errors/omissions at firstname.lastname@example.org.
(3) By donating USD 3 (the price of an average submission) and I will give you access to my full database including what I know about: cost of submission, magazine remuneration, word limits and reading periods. If you are interested, please send me a message at email@example.com.
Enjoy & make sure you support your favourite magazines by following them!
