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

A: Chiron Review
Rattle
Tupelo Press

A: We admire a variety of publications, including Paper Darts, JetFuel, Black Fox Literary Magazine, and many others.

The Pinch

A: There are so many! To start: Thrush, Cherry Tree, Two Peach, Gulf Stream, New England Review, Bennington Review, and Poet's Country are beautiful literary journals.

Carlie Hoffman, Editor-in-Chief of Small Orange, 22 October 2018

A: Because we're an undergraduate-produced magazine, I'm constantly looking for publications that defy what it means to be "undergraduate." I really enjoy The Common, Miscellany, and the Susquehanna Review. Outside of student publications--Brevity, Fjords Review, PANK, The Rumpus, The Adroit Journal, and Smokelong Quarterly.

A: Poetry Magazine
The New York Review of Books
The Paris Review
James Joyce Quarterly
The New Criterion

A: I admire the little guys who publish content because it’s important and interesting. Not because it will necessarily get the most clicks and sell ad space. But I also love the guys who got big just by doing that. Look at Messy Nessy Chic, Weird Catholic, and Cult of Weird. They all provide outlets for quirky, research-based, creative non-fiction that borders on journalism. It’s this great niche-y subgenre that deserves more attention.

A: Fine Lines admires all modern journals, The New Yorker, Sun, and other publications that feature creative writing by young writers of all ages. We support those individuals who struggle to find and develop their voices, help others to be heard, and dare to share their messages with the world. In our twenty-seven years of life, Fine Lines has published writers in the second grade up to university graduate schools. The oldest writer ever published was ninety-four and continued to write poetry until she passed away. Our writing list includes doctors, lawyers, one Native American Indian Chief, truck drivers, prisoners, homeless people, and millionaires. Our best writers include those with many degrees, but often, the most interesting writers are those who have never been published before. Still, they say, "I have this story idea that will not go away. I think it is a good one, but I don't know how to get started. Will you help me?" We have a long list of editors who do help anyone who asks. Contact us. Let's write your story, together. Our motto is "Write On!" This is what we do. Contact us. Send us a submission. We will get back to you. Go to www.finelines.org to see one of our journals free. If it looks interesting, we will be the publication for you. Our non-profit organization publishes four books a year. They are available via Amazon. We also have four digital copies available, too. The digital copies are in color. The printed versions are in black and white. We hope to hear from you soon. Write On!
