Make Your Own Literary Magazine

More than 500,000 magazines have been created on Flipboard in the last two weeks as readers share their favorite stories, links and online content. If you want to create a literary journal on Flipboard, simply download the free app and save stories in a personalized magazine within Flipboard.

We created a GalleyCat magazine in Flipboard–look us up if you have the app! You could make your own literary journal, for instance, mixing short stories from your favorite online outlets along with publishing news.  AppNewser has all the details:

News aggregation app Flipboard has updated its iOS app to Version 2 and the update allows readers to curate and share their own personalized magazines. Users can now use the app to “collect and save content into your own magazines,” explains the iTunes update, using a new bookmarklet icon to add items from a browser. These personalized Flipboard magazines can be public or private. If you want to make it public, other people can like, comment and subscribe to your magazines and you’ll get an update when they do. You can also share your creations via email, Facebook, Twitter, and G+.
