Peach Mag has been named to Entropy's Best of 2019: Presses, Magazines, Publishers, & Journals list! This is the second year in a row we've appeared on this list alongside 19 other literary publishers from across the country. Entropy's best-of series is "curated by the entire Entropy community" with the magazine crowdsourcing nominations from its readers every year.
"This list brings together some of our favorite presses, publishers, magazines, literary journals, and other literary / publishing projects that were doing phenomenal work in 2019. This doesn’t mean necessarily those that were founded or started this year, just those we thought were doing particularly exciting & cool things this year and deserve a little bit of extra attention." (Entropy)
