The London Magazine is England’s oldest literary periodical, with a history stretching back to 1732. 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. 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.

Our June/July 2019 issue features essays on the Britain’s cultural debt to Europe, the cult fascination of relics, the fiction of Xie Hong, a beautiful piece by Konrad Muller on both the death of his father and the poetry of Carlos Drummond de Andrade, alongside Laurel Forster on London history, Jeffrey Meyers on Francis King and Jennifer Johnson on Marilynne Robinson’s Gilead trilogy. Creative work is short fiction by the brilliant Chuck Nwoke and Dana Combs Leigh.

Poetry from Salt Publishing Director Chris Emery and the mercurial Robert Lundquist whose book AFTER MOZART (HEROIN ON 5TH STREET) was recently published by the New River Press, amongst Katherine Robinson, Sharon Black, Benjamin Palmer, George Tardios, Sue Hubbard, Byron Beynon, Roger Craik, Ronan Hyacinth, Bernadette McCarthy, and Frieda Hughes with John Kinsella. Literary criticism by Suzi Feay, Houman Barekat, Stephanie Sy-Quia, Andrew Lambirth, Philip Womack, Laurence Brockliss and Alistair Lexden.
