Literary Twitter — Lit-ter? — is at the moment (and rightfully) more than a little upset about the news that literary magazine PANK is going away.

Friend of SRoB Rahawa Haile puts it best:

Literary magazines, for the most part, are short-lived creatures. They're born, they live within a certain time, and they're gone. The amount of surprise and shock PANK's shuttering has inspired is telling: we all thought that somehow, against all odds, it would last forever.
