The internet's largest free database of literary agents













Webzines and E-Journals

We love, love, love webzines and e-journals, especially the ones that incorporate the best aspects of the internet--interactivity, sound, image, and words--to create unparalleled experimentation in creative energy, synergy, intellectualism, irreverence, and yes... sometimes, chaos.

Webzines and e-journals offer new and aspiring writers a virtual publishing playground. They challenge our notions of plain vanilla commercialism, and they treat our souls to innovative mind-candy. In short, there are thousands of places on the web to publish your work. We can only list two scores of them. But all of our picks offer readers and writers a cyber corner of literary convenience.
