Blast Furnace now a member of the CLMP!

Blast Furnace is proud to announce that it was approved and is now a member of the Council of Literary Magazines and Presses (CLMP), which serves "one of the most active segments of American arts and culture...including independent publishers of exceptional fiction, poetry and prose."

We love what the CLMP has to say about literary magazines and presses and what they accomplish: "the backstage work of American literature: discovering new writers; supporting mid-career writers; publishing the creative voices of communities underrepresented in the mainstream commercial culture; and preserving literature for future readers by keeping books in print."

You'll note the official CLMP logo in this specific post, and as a constant on the left panel of our website.
