The North

The North is essential reading if you are a lover of good poetry. Each issue includes: a lively range of international contemporary poetry by new and established writers, book reviews from mainstream publishers to smaller presses; critical articles; conversations with writers; and blind criticism.

The magazine started life as an A4 stapled ‘fanzine’ at Huddersfield Polytechnic in 1986 and is now part of the furniture of British poetry. My involvement with The North started with issue 48 and I’m about to start on issue 63.
