They have our humble publication as number 20, the second-youngest in the top 30 (after Tin House). Among university-affiliated magazines, CR would be number 11 (number 3 among journals whose schools grant creative writing PhDs). We’re honored to be nestled among such esteemed journals as Yale Review, McSweeneys, and Granta. For the complete list, along with criteria used and comments on each journal, click here.
