Solid Writing by Decent, Hard-Working Writers
July 9, 2013 § 4 Comments
Brevity is listed as one of “Five Literary Magazines That Restore My Faith in Publishing” in the latest issue of LitReactor. Some nice words, indeed:
Not flashy like McSweeney’s or highfalutin like The New Yorker, Brevity offers a selection of solid writing on related topics by decent, hard-working writers. The site also offers book reviews and craft essays, so you can get your literary kicks in, too, if you have extra time on your hands. They also take submissions, so you know you will not always be reading the same old same old.
I love Brevity because the stories are short but well-done, and you can select a few to read or just one. Unlike print magazines that seem to require that I take a vacation just to read them, this online journal gives me all the quality with none of the guilt. I can read a story on my lunch break and still have time to finish my sandwich.
