Lit Mag Survey

If you could subscribe to any five (5) literary magazines (assume: money is no object and that you subscribe to none currently; forget the slicks--New Yorker, Atlantic, etc.), what would they be? (Please list them in order of preference.)

You may leave your list as a comment here or send your list to me at: gnatsragc@aol.com. When I get enough responses to make a significant ranking, which will be weighted according to position on the submitted lists, I'll post it here.

Thanks!

Clilff -- By using the word "subscribe," it seems as though you're limiting the list to print mags. Many of my favorite lit mags are online; however, if I could subscribe to only 5 print mags, these would probably be my pick (in no particular order):

1. Conjunctions (also online)
2. Jubilat
3. Black Clock
4. Anemone Sidecar
5. Black Warrior

1. Threepenny Review
2. Black Clock
3. Paris Review
4. Ploughshares
5. Black Warrior (ties with Georgia Review, since you've asked for ONLY five!)

Thanks, all! I'll let answers come in for another day or two before compiling the list. And yes, Carol, I was aiming at print magazines only. I also read some Zines (not the same ones you read, I'd wager, based on your print list), but for me it's a different animal.
