What Is Journal of the Month?
The Journal of the Month is the ideal gift for the budding Virginia Woolf or closeted Ernest Hemingway in your life. Every month your word-lover -- or logophile -- will receive a reputable literary magazine that’s a defining voice in the contemporary literary scene. Because each issue is from a different magazine, there’s a generous sampling of literary literati from which your witty wordsmith will find her new favorite read.

Nothing encourages a writer to put pen to paper like the regular influence of award-winning poems, stories, and essays. Support your friend’s writing habit with a subscription to the Journal of the Month, thereby also supporting the journals that might one day publish his writing.
