I'm revitalizing this blog. And what better way than by serving its faithful readers with links to journals somewhat under the radar (depending upon whose radar you are using), that you will want to read (and possibly submit to).
Here are five journals I've recently come across that publish excellent stories and poems--places I would be proud to see my work, that you probably won't find listed in Best American Poetry or Best American Short Stories--YET!
