The Review Review Review

Okay, all you writers of short (and maybe not so short) lit, here's a website to help you navigate those busy literary journal waters. Check out The Review Review, based just down the road apiece in Boston. The Review Review reviews the latest in literary journals and mags. This is very handy if you can't find independent journals at your local bookstore, library, or online. When you're ready to send out that short gem you've been spit-polishing, the site's a great source to find out if a journal is right for your genre (or non-genre). It's also a good way to see what journals are publishing, and to whet your appetite to pick up a copy even if you don't think they're the right home for your stuff.

The latest review on the site has a thorough go at the fall 2008 issue of Post Road. Along with each review is a rundown of vital stats. For example, if you'd like to know if Post Road accepts multiple submissions (yes) or what their circulation numbers are (that'd be 2000) you can find them here. Each review links directly to a journal's online presence, if there is one. So torque up your favorite browser (make mine Internet Explorer 7!) and settle in for some enlightening reading.

Thanks for the info! I'm going to pour a glass of wine tonight, settle back, and research to my heart's content.

What a great idea for your blog, a review of a review review.
It was, surprisingly, not at all redundant.
