Challenges for Small Literary Journals

"Serious journals of literature and ideas pride themselves on in-depth pieces that advance scholarship. So how can such journals - many of which count subscribers in the hundreds - thrive in an era in which libraries and humanities programs are not overflowing with cash? And how can these publications, still print-centric and labor intensive, survive in an era in which so many embrace the speed and efficiency of digital publishing?

Leaders of four of such publications gathered at the annual meeting of the Modern Language Association to discuss some of the strategies they are using."
