Journals That Blog?

Holy heck...56 people turned out for last night's reading at the Arts Club. Go DC literary scene, go! That makes me doubly excited for the July 8 reading, featuring Ethelbert Miller and David Keplinger "Flirting with the Master" Pablo Neruda. In my mind, Neruda = summer.

I'm happy to find out that Hayden's Ferry Review has launched a blog (in conjunction with their amzing Issue #42, "The Grotesque"). This has me thinking about other "journals that blog." Not blogs belonging to journal editors--though many of those are great--but rather, a community space where one can see the "voice" of the journal at work. They're intriguing, and I'd like to add a few to my blogroll.

So: anyone have recommendations for good journals-that-blog out there? Ones that have substantive entries (not just PR) and are regularly updated? Pshares, the Ploughshares blog--there's a place to start. Next?

Thanks for linking to our new blog! Much more to come soon, including some podcast interviews. I'm trying to keep an active list of journals with blogs on our blog, so check that out.

My neighbor, the Indiana Review, has one: http://indianareview.blogspot.com/

They sometimes post podcasts of local readings; definitely check out the "Variations on Funk" reading which was one of the best readings I've ever attended!

There are also a lot of journals on Facebook, if you want to go that far. :)

The print poetry magazine Blue Collar Review has a blog, Blue Collar Holler. (I'm a blog member though not involved with editing or publishing the magazine. Editor/publisher is Al Markowitz.)

A couple of others I'm aware of are Kenyon Review and the online magazine The November 3rd Club.

Hmmm, most of the ones I've spotted on Myspace are mostly for PR...but I'll keep my eyes open!
