Today on The Daily Beast, One Story is featured as one of the five best lit mags that publish “tomorrow’s literary superstars today.”
Lizzie Stark writes, “It’s not just the size that makes the journal approachable- the stories published are powerful, absorbing, and they have range…One Story publishes work by well-known and first-time authors. The then-little-known John Hodgeman appeared in One Story’s first issue in 2002; Gregory Macguire of Wicked Fame wrote for issue #4, and literary superstar Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie also ended up in One Story early in her career. Editor in Chief Hannah Tinti’s undeniable knack for editing and her impeccable taste have earned the magazine a Pushcart, O. Henry, or Best American award, or some combination thereof, every year since 2004.”
A heap of thanks to Lizzie Stark and The Daily Beast for recognizing our goal to find new writers. Since One Story publishes each author only one time, we are always on the lookout for that bright, new voice.
