More than you knew before about German literary mags. Bookfox blogs about the Goethe Institut’s coverage of the literary journal/short story scene in Germany: “Like moles, literary magazines burrow through the subsoil and often bring literary treasures to light. They live on self-exploitation, are sometimes short-lived and bizarre, and publish against the mainstream.” The title of this article? “Moles in the Subsoil of the Book Market: German Literary Magazines,” of course.
We missed mentioning this last week (even after we were so nicely asked to do so): Hannah Tinti, one of the founding editors of One Story, recently won the PEN/Nora Magid Award for her work on the magazine.
Luna Park is a review of the world of literary magazines, founded on the idea that journals are as deserving of critical attention as other artistic works. Every Tuesday, Luna Park editor Travis Kurowski will present selected news on the Fictionaut blog. Welcome to Luna Digest.
Literary magazine publishing has always been a risky endeavor, forever skirting the edge of the market. Foundational magazines, such as the Pre-Raphaelite The Germ and high modernists like The Little Review and transition, suffered tumultuous and typically short lives, constantly searching for funding to keep their publications (and, so, their writers) in print.
Fictionaut brings the social web to literary fiction, connecting readers and writers through a community network that doubles as selfselecting magazine highlighting the most exciting short stories, poetry, flash fiction, and novel excerpts.
