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

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: 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.

K. China Myers, Senior Editor of Duende, 29 September 2019

A: It's difficult to narrow it down, but off the top of my head, I'm a fan of Into the Void, Sky Island Journal, Underground Voices, The Sun, and many more.

Fantasy and Science Fiction Magazine,
Guardbridge Books,

A: As a writer in Asia, I look at a lot of the literary journals in the area from The Shanghai Lit Review, Spittoon, Cha, Literary Shanghai's Alluvium, The Font, and Brushstrokes.

Utne Reader
Yes! Magazine

A: I'm a big fan of the work done by Aurealis Magazine and Andromeda Spaceways Inflight Magazine. They've been releasing excellent fiction for years now. I also enjoy the classics like Asimov and Analog. You can probably tell I'm a big fan of science fiction.

A: I admire the photographs, drawings, paintings, poems, flash fictions and stories sent to Communicators League for publication as well as their authors.
