21 Literary Magazines in Hindi– Publish Poetry, Short Stories, and Non-fiction Online

Magazines in Hindi

Hindi storytelling has been transformed over the past 2 to 3 decades. Hindi literary writing has always had its stars, but new media like Web-series, cinema, and even stand-up have taken Hindi storytelling to a whole new level of creativity. Contemporary Hindi current writing goes well past the cliches of the सास-बहु serial or the brothers “ जो मेले में बिछ्डे थे”.

Literary magazines have been an important part of the English literary landscape, and are a great medium, especially for writers of poetry and short stories, and other short-form writing. Hindi has had its own tradition of literary Magazines, with some like Hans dating back to the pre-independence era.
