We've had quite an exciting first year of publication. Muzzle has the
distinct honor of being the only online literary magazine named as one
of the ten best new magazines of 2010 by Steve Black at Library Journal
in “LJ Best New Magazines of 2010: Ten new periodicals rise to the
top.” Additionally, in a starred review published in January 2011,
Steve Black called our little magazine "a fine literary journal of
creative writing by people of diverse backgrounds that deserves to be
linked to from catalogs in libraries everywhere." Our past issues have
included stunning work from Roger Bonair-Agard, Marty McConnell, Rachel
McKibbens, Marcus Wicker, Cristin O'Keefe Aptowicz, Jamaal May, and
many many other talented folks.
