Atlantic Monthly to drop fiction

Beginning in August, the Atlantic Monthly, the legacy ship seeing an advertising turnaround of late, will no longer run fiction. Instead, the magazine plans to offer a newsstand only fiction issue.

The announcement will be made to readers in the editor's note in the upcoming May issue. (Folio)

I don't read The Atlantic Monthly as often as The New Yorker, but I must confess, the fiction section of the latter is the one part I consistently skip. Short stories are just the hardest thing for me to read, for some reason.

  1. It seems like The Atlantic has been sliding to the right for a while. This is also the consensus on kos.
