From the publisher
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 18th-century, to T.S. Eliot, W.H. Auden and Evelyn Waugh in the early 20th-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.

Among creative work is brilliant short fiction from Chuck Nwoke, and poetry from Salt Publishing Director Chris Emery, poetry in translation from Katherine Robinson, and two poems from the mercurial Robert Lundquist, whose book AFTER MOZART (HEROIN ON 5TH STREET) has recently been published by the New River Press.
