On my "to submit" list:

Two brand, spanking new journals... just waiting for submissions. Are they on your list? They should be.

1. Packingtown Review "was founded in 2007 at the University of Illinois at Chicago by a group of Ph.D. students in the English department. The journal features poetry, prose, drama, literary scholarship, and cultural commentary and reflects the UIC English department's interdisciplinary approach. Packingtown Review publishes established and emerging US-American and international writers as well as English translations of contemporary and classic works, especially from lesser-known languages. The first issue is slated for publication in November 2008, and the second in November 2009. After the second release, the journal will be issued biannually."

2. Glass: A Journal of Poetry seeks new, original poems for its second issue, due out in June of 2008, and the third issue, due out December 2008. Their first issue will appear on March 1, 2008 and features 35 poems by 29 poets. Included in the debut issue are Rane Arroyo, Adam Houle, Joseph Hutchinson, Ryan McClellen, Lisa Fay Coutley, Tom Carson, Amanda McQuade, Allison Tobey, and Davide Trame, among others.
