June Lit Mag Reviews on NewPages
Yesterday we supplied you with the latest in literary magazine reviews. As of last month, Screen Reading (mini reviews of online and digital magazines) is now on the same page, so you’ll get a sampling of both print and online/digital magazines in the mix.
Discover both brand new and well-established mags as our expanse of reviewers gives you honest recommendations of what to read. We don’t assign reviews or charge magazines to be reviewed, so you know you’ll always be getting an unbiased review. Here are the first lines from several reviews:
“Though I’ve read several issues of Phoebe before, I’m always impressed by how diverse the journal is in terms of genre, aesthetic, and style,” Justin Brouckaert writes.
“Fairy Tale Review maintains its fanciful theme well, but its significance as a literary document exceeds whimsy: the authors transform modern literature, spackling any clichés or invention with language, philosophy, and critical energy,” writes Mary Florio.
“Bop Dead City is a humble, independent, quarterly literary magazine,” writes Melanie Tague. “At first glance it may seem to lack the finesse of larger magazines, but upon closer inspection, the reader will be pleasantly surprised to see interesting cover art as well as poetry and fiction that can and will inspire us all to read more or to pick up a pen and begin to write.”
The rest of the print magazines reviewed include both well established journals and a mix of newer ones: 2 Bridges Review, The Austin Review, Black Magnolias, The Cape Rock, Hiram Poetry Review, Iodine Poetry Journal, Juked, Kestrel, MAKE Literary Magazine, Minetta Review, No Tokens, The Pinch, Sierra Nevada Review, and Subtropics.
Online magazines reviewed by Kirsten McIlvenna (as Screen Reading) include Clare, Communion, New Purlieu Review, rawboned, and Red Booth Review. They are combined in with the rest of the reviews, but if you would like links to these particular reviews as well as more recent online magazine reviews, you can click here.
