MISSION + HISTORY

 

Peach Mag is an independent and volunteer-run literary publishing project. Our flagship publication is our online journal, where we publish a new literary or visual art feature every Tuesday and Friday (Mag), as well as two monthly columns, Favorite Books and Indie LitWe also produce print anthologies (Books), present a seasonal reading series (Episodes), and host an annual apprenticeship for emerging teen editors (Seeds).

The work we publish has appeared on Entropy's Best of 2019: Favorite Poems Published Online list, and we nominate our contributors every year for the Pushcart Prize, Best of the Net, and other awards and anthologies. Our publications, programming, and editorial initiatives have earned us recognition on the Whiting's list of finalists for the 2020 Literary Magazine Prize, Entropy's Best of: Literary Journals list for 2018 and 2019, Nostrovia! Press' 2017 list of publishers that "won't waste your time," and profiles in both regional and national outlets.

Founded by three friends in Buffalo during the summer of 2016, and currently powered by a team of fourteen volunteers in ten cities across North America.
