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

A: Fireweed, 45th Parallel, Anhinga Press, BLF, Copper Canyon

A: I love what Scumbag Press (Martin Appleby) Analog Submission Press (Marc Br├╝seke) and Between Shadows Press(Tohm Bakelas) are doing with chapbooks. They're putting out some really high quality chaps with phenomenal writers, most of which the mainstream audience have never heard of.
Horror Sleaze Trash (Arthur Graham) has a large online presence as well as publishing a quarterly journal. They publish full-length collections of poetry and short stories as well.
There's also an up and coming Press called Pure Sleeze, ran by Antoine Ball that I'm keeping my eye on. The Grind Stone is an Anthology journal run By Jonathan S Baker and Snow Matthews that looks phenomenal.

A: Georgia Review, River Styx, Agni, Gettysburg Review

A: Ecotone, Orion, Kenyon Review, Milkweed, Restless Books, Norton, Graywolf, Catapult, Conjunctions, Split Rock, Terrain.org, The Fourth River

A: The New York Times, WSJ, New Yorker, Variety Magazine

A: Simultaneous Tims, Mocha Memoirs Press, Nightmare Press, Atlantean Publishing, Aurealis Science Fiction & Fantasy

A: There are so many publications that emerge everyday, and I always love seeing those grow and develop. It's incredibly exciting to see the literary arts field expand and develop literally day by day. So any new publications, I'm always eager to read. I'm intrigued to see what [BRACK] will do. I love what Surging Tide Mag has been doing so far. Other publications I love: Lantern Review, Chicago Review, Sine Theta, Split Lip, Paris Review. Those are probably the publications I'm reading most frequently right now.
Some favorite publishers include Tin House, New Directions, Farrar, Straus & Giroux and Galley Beggar Press.

A: I love the indie mags: Frankie, Kinfolk, Cereal, DRIFT, Womankind, Counterpoint.

Gemma Peckham, Editor-in-Chief of Oh Reader, 04 September 2022

A: Any small-print-run poetry press - I know how hard the editors work for little or no financial reward.

A: I adore the work Antonia R. Ward is doing at Ghost Orchid Press. I also love what Rebecca Wojturska is doing at Haunt Publishing.

A: Personally, I love the work being published by Tinderbox Poetry, Longleaf Review, and Poetry Northwest, amongst so many others. The writing they feature is so artistically developed alongside being creative and eclectic. Wildness Journal, Frontier Poetry, and Split Lip Magazine are also eternal favorites. A Velvet Giant and ctrl+V are some of the best experimental journals around.

A: There are a lot of niche publishers in the military and security-themed space, past and present, whose work we read with great interest. Osprey is one that comes to mind, but we love to be surprised by books on subjects that fascinate us from small publishers who took a chance on something.
