Informal Poll – Writers Share Their Journal Wish-List

On November 2, Eduardo C. Corral asked writers on Facebook to “name a journal that’s never taken your work.” The thread quickly turned into a publishing wish list. More than eighty writers responded (from 1 – 5) times and more than 50 magazines were listed (below). Poetry was mentioned the most times (8) and I was inspired to submit to one of these magazines for the first time. What’s your “white whale” journal?
