Details from the Sensations Magazine Press Release:
"Written by Publisher David Messineo, our new published research article "50 Over 25 - Honoring the Longevity of America's Literary Magazine Editors and Poetry Reading Series" offers a detailed list of currently active (35) and retired or deceased (15) American litmag editors, poetry editors, and fiction editors who have offered 25 or more years of service to America's writers. Two independent book publishers who have been active in the poetry/fiction publishing genre for 25+ years, and 5 others expected to reach 25 years of service by 2015, round out the first portion of the article. A detailed list of the longest lasting, still active poetry reading series in America — all operating 25 years or more — closes out the article. The article is published in Sensations Magazine Issue 49, Part 2, Winter 2011."
