Five Points is ranked in the top ten magazines in the nation by Every Writer’s Resource. Works first published in Five Points have been selected to appear in Best American Short Stories, Best American Poetry, O’Henry Prize Stories, Pushcart Best of the Small Presses, New Stories from the South, Utne Reader, Harper’s, and Poetry Daily. Previous contributors include Richard Bausch, Ann Beattie, Frederick Busch, Edward Hirsch, Barbara Hamby, David Kirby, Philip Levine, W.S.
