@timmy 66: One Story puts out an excellent story every three weeks. It's a great format and I've enjoyed every issue I've recv'd.

No one has ever heard of Little Star, no one ever reads n + 1, and One Story is hardly a magazine. They publish ONE story every few months. This whole thing stinks. I'm sorry but it's true.

We just put out the second issue of the Montague Street Journal! The only U.S. (the UK has 2) print journal dedicated to the Art of Bob Dylan. Straight out of Brooklyn!

little star is a lovely publication, but published (at least in the first issue) mostly big names (muldoon, heaney, walcott et al).

i wonder if the plan is to start with a splash to get attention, but to allow for a broader pool of writers who are less well known for future issues?

I wonder if each editor thinks literary magazines are the future of literary writing?
