Happy International Women’s Day: Women Editors Online

Dear Readers,

Last month, in preparation for an AWP panel titled ” Founding Women: Publishers and Editors from across the Literary Journal Landscape,” for which I joined  fellow founding editors Jennifer S. Flescher (organizer of the panel), Brigid Hughes, Rebecca Wolff, Jennifer Barber, Beth Harrison, and Amanda Johnston, I sent out an email to the CLMP (Council of Literary Magazines and Presses) listserv for e-publishers, asking for the names of online literary magazines founded and edited by women. I was thrilled by the response I received. What struck me was how innovative these editors have been: the range of projects undertaken is impressive and inspiring. I include here the compiled list from that CLMP query. It is not comprehensive, by any means, but this is a wonderful starting point for being introduced to new magazines, and for demonstrating what women editors are doing in online literary publishing. I hope you will offer missing names and links up in our comment section, and that you will take the time to visit these links. It’s worth your time, I promise.

Happy International Women’s Day from Memorious, where we think about women writers every day!

All Best,

Rebecca Morgan Frank

[Note: We love hearing about magazines founded by women! But we will keep the list itself to journals which originated online with one or more founding editor who is a woman. We’re not fact checking this, and we understand that such a list is a limiting concept when so many journals are smartly hybrid in nature. But if we included every print magazine that has an online component, then this becomes a different list: a comprehensive list of literary magazines founded by women. Which is a great idea! Some one should do that. We wish we had the time. So please bear with any weaknesses of methodology and accuracy here: this is a loose resource to remind us all of the great work women editors are doing.]
