The New York Times says there has been an explosion of literary magazines, now more than 1,000.
"There are more literary magazines out there than ever, and it’s an
important part of the literary world’s unsung heroes," said Jeffrey
Lependorf, executive director of the Council of Literary Magazines and
Presses, founded to help literary magazines compete in the marketplace.
"If you’re interested in experimental poetry there’s a journal for you.
If you’re interested in Southern culture, there’s a magazine for you."
Among the magazines the article mentions is flash fiction magazine Quick Fiction.
