Joyland is a literary magazine that curates fiction regionally. We’ve chosen several editors to select and post stories by authors connected to locales across North America.
Picked by the CBC as part of the Top 100 of 2008, Joyland has been called "the go-to spot for readers seeking the best voices in short fiction."
In an article on the state of literary magazines, Q&Q proclaimed, “A savvy, sleek publication, devoted entirely to new short fiction. Joyland boasts editors in several major North American cities, and has published marquee names such as Jonathan Lethem and Lydia Millet … The future of literary magazines is already here.”
Joyland was created by Emily Schultz and Brian Joseph Davis. It was designed and developed by Ross Merriam.
