From Jeoslyn Roebuck: "Plankton was born out of the Virginia Tech tragedy and seeks to showcase new and emerging artists, poets and writers. Each issue will reflect a different angle of creativity. The first issue is designed more or less as a concept album that crafts of story of its own out of eachi individually accepted submission." Plankton is published quarterly and is available as a full-color, full-text PDF (takes several minutes to download). Plankton accepts poetry and art submisisons.

Quarterly 'Hopkins Review' will launch this month

From Greg Rienzi's contribution to The JHU Gazette:

"Dormant for more than five decades, The Hopkins Review makes a triumphant return to the literary landscape this fall.

"The original Hopkins Review was launched in 1947 by the Writing Seminars, then called the Department of Writing, Speech and Drama. The literary magazine back then was a thin paperback volume that sold for 25 cents a copy. Acclaimed novelist and short-story writer John Barth, a Writing Seminars alumnus and later a JHU faculty member, published his first story in its pages, which also included the works of such celebrated poets as Richard Wilbur and E.E. Cummings.

"The magazine eventually languished due to a lack of funds and a dwindling number of full-time faculty in the department. It folded in 1953.

"The 190-page quarterly literary magazine will publish fiction; poetry; memoirs; essays on literature, drama, film, the visual arts, music and dance; and reviews of books in all these areas, as well as reviews of performances and exhibits."

The price of pots in Athens!
It really made me burn
when the potter told me just how much
I owed on a Grecian urn.

St. Petersburg Review, Issue #1 (216 pages) contains 48 pieces (poetry, fiction, and nonfiction) by 34 writers; 28, or 58 percent of the pieces are in translation, and 16 of the authors(47 percent) are non-American, many, in this issue, Russian writers who teach or lecture at St. Petersburg Summer Literary Seminars (SLS). The first issue is enhanced by its symbiotic relationship with SLS. Besides providing an all-star list of Russian and American writers for SPR editors to solicit, SLS served as the venue for the journal’s launch, and provided a copy to each workshop participant. In the first two weeks of SPR’s launch, over 200 copies were sold and/or distributed. Unsolicited submissions of fiction, poetry, essays, and plays will be accepted September 1 through January 15 of each year.

Parnassus Lives
August 12th, 2007 by Jeremy Axelrod for the Kenyon Review
Parnassus: Poetry in Review will not be closing shop with Volume 30, after all. Until recently, financial woes made that round, impressive number seem like a sensible finale for the journal’s magnificent run. As Meg Galipault noted on KR Blog [Kenyon Review Blog], Willard Spiegelman wrote in the Wall Street Journal about its “commitment to intelligence and beautiful writing” — an achievement that’s sadly not enough to fill the till. But sometimes poetry does make things happen, or at least poetry critics do. A very generous reader of the Wall Street Journal saw Spiegelman’s article and offered to fully fund Parnassus for two more years. In the last few months, many magazines and newspapers have lamented the end of Parnassus and praised its decades of excellence. Nobody spoke too soon. When the donation materialized, it was an utter surprise for everyone. [Read the rest on KR Blog]
