TOMORROW MAGAZINE, published since 1982, takes its name
from editor Tim W. Brown's mission to showcase tomorrow's writing today.
Tomorrow always is seeking work for possible publication. In the past we
have published poetry, short fiction, essays, dramatic scripts, interviews and
B/W art. We prefer to look at about five poems at a time; we are not
considering fiction at present due to over-commitments in this area. Although
we will consider any style of writing, work that we publish tends to be more
underground than academic in character. Contributors include Antler, Gina
Bergamino, Hugh Fox, Richard Kostelanetz, M.L. Liebler, Lyn Lifshin, Kay
Murphy, Charles Rammelkamp, Cheryl Townsend and Paul Weinman. Contact
Tomorrow at POB 148486, Chicago, IL 60614; e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org.
