Journal Eastown Fiction

We are dedicated to publishing the best stories we can get our hands on, regardless of genre. On the first of the month we'll publish the best story we've received to date, and then, as exceptional stories come in, we'll publish them at our discretion. When the month is up, the stories will be saved in our archives. Our goal is to make the online reading experience more like reading a well printed book.

Journal Ecotone: Reimagining Place

Each issue of Ecotone brings together the literary and scientific, the personal and biological, the urban and rural. Much of the writing we publish addresses the idea of place—overlapping habitats both real and aesthetic. We aim to bridge the gap between science and culture, to break out of the pen of the purely literary and wander freely among the disciplines.

Journal Electric Literature's Recommended Reading

Recommended Reading, a magazine by Electric Literature, publishes one story a week, each chosen by today’s best authors or editors. Each issue includes an editor’s note written by that week’s partner, introducing you to the work and their mission. In this age of distraction, we’re uncovering writing that’s worth slowing down and spending some time with. And in doing so, we’re giving great writers, literary magazines, and independent presses the recognition (and readership) they deserve.
