Poetry London is a leading international poetry magazine where acclaimed contemporary poets share pages with exciting new names. Published three times a year in February, May and September, each issue contains new poetry, incisive reviews and features, and a unique listings guide to a wide range of poetry events and resources in London and throughout the UK. Poetry London holds an annual poetry competition and launches each issue with readings from distinguished poet contributors to the magazine.
Issue 78 (Summer 2014) is now available to buy here or from all good bookshops. Highlights include new work by Denise Riley, Colette Bryce, GC Waldrep and translations from Russian, Palestinian, Chinese and Spanish poets. Features include Paul Farley in conversation with Helen Mort, and Julia Bird and Clare Pollard on first collections.
