The Future of Quaint: Why Female Isn’t Enough

This is a post I’ve been contemplating writing for a while. It never seemed like the right time–or, it always seemed as though things might change, as thought I might change.

What started out as a grouchy reaction against misogyny in publishing--a small online journal with a modest reach--has exploded into a quarterly print, PDF, and online literary magazine that has consistently published exciting, strange, and boundary-pushing work by […]

After the debacle that was Best American Poetry 2015, folks are understandably a bit reticent about the whole concept of 'best of' anthologies. On the one hand, these annual offerings are a great way for readers to discover new, exciting work by emerging and established writers.
