The pinch producing the slap

Troubling news at Bookfox about the possible need for some premier literary journals to become self-supporting. None of these are produced for profit, and so these proposals are in many cases tantamount to closure (or to a sea-change in how they’re run, such as charging for submissions).  I’m not sure what can be done, other than, as Bookfox suggests, to voice one’s ire to the PR departments (for The Southern Review, email urelat1@lsu.edu) and executive committees of the universities in question.

That, and take out subscriptions to journals you would like to be published in (and if you don’t think they’re worthy of that small amount, why do you want to be in them?)
