Important stuff

Five Points is named after an area of downtown Atlanta where cattle paths once converged at the site of an artesian well. As editors, the name offers us a metaphor for our goal of presenting a convergence of ideas and genres, photographs and text, north and south, east and west, young and old.
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. Merwin, Joyce Carol Oates, Naomi Shihab Nye, Ellen Bryant Voigt, Christine Stewart, Martin Walls, Charles Wright and many others.
