What Lit Mags SHOULD You Be Reading?

HuffPo list of lit mags

This morning, Buzzfeed put out a list of 29 literary magazines you need to be reading.  What I love about this list is the fact that, in addition to some extremely well known lit mags (Poetry, McSweeney’s, Oxford American, Guernica), there is a nice compilation of journals you may not have yet encountered (but totally should).  I admit to being a bit annoyed to see a few of my favorites conspicuously absent from this list (Hello?  Where is Mid-American Review?), but as with all lists of this sort, some things must fall off.  Alas.  I’ll save you the click and list Buzzfeed’s suggestions here.  Happy reading!
