From the digital library of Georgia:

A significant part of the critical and creative legacy of Lillian Smith is the magazine that she and her partner Paula Snelling published from 1936 to 1945. Smith and Snelling began publishing a small, quarterly literary magazine, Pseudopodia, in 1936. The magazine encouraged writers, black or white, to offer honest assessments of modern Southern life, to advocate for social and economic reform; and it criticized those who ignored the Old South's poverty and injustices. Their magazine quickly gained regional fame as a forum for liberal thought, undergoing two name changes to reflect its expanding scope. In 1937 it became the North Georgia Review. In 1942, the magazine was renamed South Today and then ceased publication in 1945.
