“Cooler than cool, the pinnacle of what is ‘it’.” — Urban Dictionary
The realm of literary journals that may be termed “hip” was recently brought to my attention by George Bowering. George, who I presume is the one noted here, wrote about my list of best journals (see post here) were “square.” I agree that many of the journals I noted are not known for experimental, challenging, ground-breaking, or avante-garde literature, but, in fact, focus on traditional forms of storytelling.
Here, then, are a few hip journals (the last two, perhaps, for the Beat crowd). Feel free to add others in the comments section.
