Here is a small sampling from our recent Editor Interviews. We have interviewed over 1,725 editors.

Q: What other current publications (or publishers) do you admire most?

A: Copper Canyon Press, Red Hen Press, and Folded Word.

A: This is a tricky one. 'Admire' is a strong word and it doesn't always correspond with what I 'like'. I tend to admire publications that stay consistent in the voice/content they project: Block, Ambit, Cordite, FOLDER, alligatorzine. The feel is that they release work in-line with their own practice, their own experience of the world. Three issues in, Poached Hare is still finding its consistency.

A: I admire Foreign Policy, The Guardian and Aljazeera in terms of their quality and in-depth reporting.

A: Tinfish Press, Bamboo Ridge Press, One Story, Barrelhouse, Fence, Hawai`i Review

A: BOAAT, The Rumpus, GAY Magazine, Mslexia, Cemetery Dance, Naked Lunch, Cinnamon Press, decomP magazinE, Menacing Hedge, Crab Fat Magazine

A: I don't really have time to read other publications as we are so busy with our own projects

A: Kenyon Review, december magazine, Cincinnati Review

A: Besides the well-known The Atlantic, The New Yorker, The Paris Review (I guess I might be attracted to the definite article, I never thought of that), I am also drawn to Zyzzyva, Kenyon Review and Tin House (the latter print RIP, I shall endeavor to migrate online). I endeavor not to stay with one publication for too long, preferring to peruse publications from diverse geographies, cultural intersections and times.

A: Smoke and Mold; Ninth Letter; BOOTH; Big Lucks; Ahsahta Press; Omnidawn; Winter Tangerine; Peach Magazine; FIVE:2:ONE; Bettering Books; Lunch Ticket; Name and None

A: Unthank, Cut, Bloomsbury,

Gill James, editor-in-chief of CafeLit, 02 October 2019

A: There are many publications that I enjoy. To name just a few, I admire the transparent approach of complex issues in The California Sunday Magazine. I admire the direct and refreshing approach of The New York Times and The Telegraph. I also enjoy reading The New Yorker.
