A: Personally, I have found so much awesome in ORCA LIT. I can’t wait to get my hands on it every time a new issue comes out. ORCA was, in fact, the impetus for 34 ORCHARD—I stumbled across it while on a market search for my own stories, and I thought, ‘this is exactly what I’ve always wanted to do, and look…this can be done!’ I also enjoy HALFWAY DOWN THE STAIRS (I also found it while looking for markets for my own work). THE FICTION DESK—especially the ghost story anthologies—is another addiction for me. On the book side, I really like what Crystal Lake Publishing is putting out. Honestly, there are many lit mags I truly admire and read on a regular basis, but the ones I mentioned, at the moment, are my favorites.
A: Phronesis, Ancient Philosophy, Dionysius
A: Missouri Review, Diagram, The Believer Magazine, The Atlantic, Harper's Magazine Index, Longreads, Brevity, Marginalia, Hippocampus Magazine, the Sun Magazine, Creative Nonfiction Magazine
