The London Magazine

The London Magazine is the UK’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. It offers intelligent criticism, provocative essays, fascinating history and memoir, as well as the best in new poetry and fiction.
