What’s notable about this year’s list?

  • Georgia Review is still in first place, but the margin over Orion and Agni is constant.
  • Granta debuts. I was under the impression that Granta wasn’t eligible for some reason because it hasn’t been on any of the lists before.
  • The Sun jumps to 4th place thanks to 2 Prizes and 1 Special Mention, but otherwise movement is pretty slight.
  • Besides Granta, there are some magazines new to the list, including Los Angeles Review, which received 2 Special Mentions, Normal School, Packinghouse Review, Oregon Quarterly, and High Desert Journal.

  1. Palo Alto Review, one of those tied for #103, has stopped publication. I had a story accepted by them. Never got a magazine copy and professor Ellen Shull who used to edit the magazine won’t answer my emails.
