>The literary magazine ranking I create each year based on the Pushcart Prizes has become very popular, I’m happy to say. It’s not meant to be anything other than a quantitative measure of a magazine’s success over the past decade, one that writers may find useful in deciding where to submit their own work. That’s how I use it.
The new Pushcart Prize anthology should be available some time in November, at which point I’ll update the rankings as quickly as I can. I’ve got some improvements in store this year that I think will make the list even more useful — a more complete list of the magazines that appear to have died, a better indication of which entries are Presses rather than magazines, and hotlinks to the magazines’ websites.
I’ve been urged, also, to expand the list to include non-fiction and poetry. We’ll see. I may begin that in a limited way this year and then expand it in future years.
