Little Magazines in the UK

New Welsh Review

At the end of last year, I was finishing off a series of Creative Writing workshops with my students at Northampton University and they asked me where in the UK they could read cutting edge fiction and where (eventually) they should be aiming to send work. I was recently having a similar discussion with some of my American friends a few weeks ago and so I post this list for their benefit. It is not exhaustive. Mainly it is a list of magazines that I have some association with or that I have read and enjoyed. If anyone has any more suggestions of UK magazines, please feel free to add them.

It’s best to read these magazines before sending off work, so that you can get an idea of what they are looking for. Even if you just order one copy, it’s a help.
