These pages contain researched reports into a wide range of contemporary literary magazines. When we began our research, we decided that 1998 seemed like a good date to begin our contemporary time period. While some of these magazines existed before this year, the majority of our research has gone into the state of these magazines after 1998. For instance, even though Forklift, Ohio has been around since 1994, the report's author focused on the magazine's lifetime after the 1998 cutoff. By exploring these magazines, we hope to highlight some of the interesting ways that editors and literary magazines around the globe are tackling contemporary issues surrounding the publishing of a literary journal.
