The Short List

smallThere are 35 September additions to my list of journals that specialize in publishing prose with smaller word counts.

The one thing that stood out in the new titles of these journals is the number of words I had to look up. Constellary Tales is a magazine and podcast named in homage to the master work of Geoffrey Chaucer. A similar sounding title, Constellate Literary Journal, references the verb that means to cluster together, as stars do. Occulum seems to be a fabricated word, however the logo is in the form of an eye chart. Hematopoiesis Press uses a term describing the method of creating new blood cells. Finally, Apricity: an obsolete word that describes the feeling of the warmth of the sun in the winter.

Check them all out, plus the many others new to the list.
