With glorious cover art for this issue from a piece by Barnett Newman, The London Magazine is a new title for us. Packed with poetry, new writing and featuring both up and comers and very established and great names.
"The London Magazine is England’s oldest literary periodical, with a history stretching back to 1732. Today – reinvigorated for a new century – the Magazine’s essence remains unchanged: it is a home for the best writing and an indispensable feature on the British literary landscape.
Across a long life – spanning several incarnations – the pages of the Magazine have played host to a wide range of canonical writers, from Percy Bysshe Shelley, William Hazlitt and John Keats in the eighteenth century, to T.S. Eliot, W.H. Auden and Evelyn Waugh in the early twentieth century. Meanwhile, in recent decades the Magazine has published work by giants of contemporary fiction and poetry such as William Boyd, Nadine Gordimer, and Derek Walcott.
Eclectic in taste, promiscuously interested and unapologetically intelligent, The London Magazine continues to publish the best writing from London and the wider world.
Published six times a year, the Magazine is unmissable reading for anyone with an interest in literature, culture and ideas."
