Screen Reading

Monthly reviews of current issues of online literary magazines

Reviews by Kirsten McIlvenna

 

Published the first Monday of every month (barring holidays, malfunctioning computers, a late night out on Sunday . . .), Screen Reading features a collection of mini reviews of current issues of online magazines (although, I do take liberties with the word “mini” as some reviews tend to be a little meaty). Each week I scroll through lots of magazines—on my laptop before bed, on my iPhone in line at the drive-thru, on the desktop at my other job . . . oh wait, I mean, I don’t do that—to share with you writing that is worth reading. I only bring you the best and only the current. I’ll do the hard work of sorting, you do the easy and fun part and read.
You can read current reviews here.
