Mudlark is 5th on our list of Top Literary Magazines. It is a unique look at publishing on the web. They are more or less an electronic chapbook publisher, but think of them as the most widely circulated chapbooks in the history of chapbooks. The site, starting in 1995, is a pioneer of literature and good writing on the web. It is always a great read, and it preserves and promotes the spirit of literary writing at its best. Chapbooks have always been a handshake between a poet and some readers, this site represents a poet standing at the door of a football stadium greeting each person as they enter. It is hard to say how many times the first chapbook of Mudlark has been read, it dwarfs all other chapbook publications we are sure.
Mudlark is one of the reason online literary publishing has been able to gain the respect it has.
