Here is a small sampling from our recent Editor Interviews. We have interviewed over 1,925 editors.

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

A: We are big fans of Superfroot mag and Pilot Magazine. We believe their origin stories, particularly Superfroot's, is involved with unity. We also love that the content they are trying to share varies in art forms. As a magazine that tries to publish all art forms, it's nice to see others out there trying to do the same.

A: there are so many lovely publications out there, we are truly spoiled for choice: a few we adore off the top of my head are Tattie Zine, Superfroot, The Daily Drunk, Cool Rock Repository, and Thanks Hun.

A: None that I can think of at the moment.

A: Tor, Erewhon Books, CLASH Books, Crone Girls Press, Small Beer Press, Dzanc Books

A: Meow Meow Pow Pow, Sword and Kettle, Daily Drunk, Yes Poetry, Drunk Monkeys, Rising Phoenix Review, Horror Sleaze Trash, Ghost City Press, Chantarelle’s Notebook, 13 Myna Birds, Beir Bua, One Art Poetry, Sledgehammer Lit, Alien Buddha Press, The Confessionalist, Vulnerary, Revue Post, Impossible Task, Crown and Pen Zine, Rejection Letters, 8 Poems, Be About It Press, Giallo Lit, The Cabinet of Heed

A: I have deep admiration for the other little indie lit magazines trying to grow a following. I particularly love The Mark Literary Review. Jessica, their editor, is fantastic. Little indie magazines not supported by schools or large endowments are publishing really important stuff and giving voice to so many writers who are doing unique stuff. Other magazines I've been enjoying lately are: Salt Hill Journal, Midwest Review, Hell is Real, Ekstasis Magazine, Survivor Lit, and Amplify.

Julia Nusbaum, Editor-in-Chief/Founder of HerStry, 04 September 2021

A: BitchMedia, Ms. Magazine, Pussy Magic, Lilith Magazine, QuirkBooks

A: We love all Sherlock Holmes related publications. The traditional adventure series by Bonnie MacBird (4 books so far) is excellent - publisher is Collins Crime Club. In the USA Belanger Books are an emerging publisher with some great anthologies featuring Holmes too.

A: Lolwe, Praxis Magazine, Agbowo Magazine, Brittle Paper and The Kalahari Review

A: Offhand I'd say Small Beer Press, Two Dollar Radio, Neon Hemlock, Kore Press, One Story, and Graywolf are all good examples.

A: Great stories and great profiles are at the heart of what I love. Right now, I'm really digging GRLSQUASH (a biannual journal), Cherry Bombe (I love their magazine and their podcast), Whetstone Magazine (and I'm excited about their forthcoming podcast!), Oxford American. I love Paris Review, especially their interviews. I'm always excited to see what Granta and STORY are publishing, and I think Southern Humanities Review is severely underrated.

A: I like Spectrum because they showcase so many different genres of art.
