Exact Editions is delighted to announce that Poetry London is now available on its platform for institutions now with a lengthy archive of back issues. The tri-annual poetry publication goes back to Autumn 1996, and subscribers will have access to over 60 back issues as well as all new issues to come.
Poetry London is an arts charity and 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. From modest beginnings in 1988, when it was a listings newsletter, Poetry London has developed into one of the UK’s leading poetry magazines.
Both a national and international magazine, Poetry London features poems, reviews and work in translation from London, Europe, America, and other parts of the world. Its aim is to attract the best poems by the best poets currently writing in English as well as identify and foster emerging writers, providing a space in its issues to poets who have yet to publish a first collection.
Supported by Arts Council England, Poetry London is unique among major UK poetry magazines in that it is independent of any owner, poetry organisation or publishing house. It is run by an editorial team headed by Martha Sprackland. Poetry London holds an annual poetry competition and launches each issue with readings from distinguished poet contributors to the magazine.
Subscribers can easily browse the fully searchable archive going back to 1996 at their leisure through its accessible stacking interface, whilst Exact Editions’ intuitive web and app platforms allow users to jump between years and decades at the touch of a button.
