BuzzFeed, the “social news and entertainment company,” recently included Blackbird in its “Books” section as number six on its list in an article titled “29 Amazing Literary Magazines You Need To Be Reading.”

The article explains that “We asked members of the BuzzFeed Community to tell us about their favorite literary magazines. Here are the collections of fiction, essays, and poetry you need in your life.”

The list includes both print and online journals, and it encompasses well-established publications–such as Ploughshares, Granta, Lapham’s Quarterly, North American Review and Poetry magazine–as well as newer magazines such as Guernica, n+1, One Story, and Winter Tangerine Review, along with journals from Australia (The Lifted Brow) and Beijing, China (BāJiā).

British Virginia is a VCU-hosted series of scholarly editions of documents touching on the colony. These texts range from the 16th and 17th-century literature of English exploration to the 19th-century writing of loyalists and other Virginians who continued to identify with Great Britain. Editions appear principally in digital form, freely downloadable.
