In 1990 two sisters, Susan and Linda, decided to start a literary journal because of their love of reading and had just come from a successful business venture.  Today Glimmer Train is one of the most respected literary journals and  this fall 6 Glimmer Train stories appeared as notables in the 2010 Best American Short Stories second only to the New Yorker.  They offer a contest each month of the year with a reasonable entry fee and prefer online submissions.   Their journals are beautifully bound with personal touches.  LA Carlson
