Among the Neighbors came about equally to answer and to create a call for conversation on noncommercial literary magazines that publish experimental writings by relatively unknown authors. Part of what makes this occasional pamphlet series an essential publication is that it encourages informal and formal, nonacademic and academic approaches to telling the history of little magazines. Contributors are scholars themselves or former editors of little magazines, and almost all are poets.
