We are very pleased to announce that the Glasgow Review of Books is now soliciting submissions of poetry for online publication!

We welcome Samuel Tongue to our team as our new poetry editor. He has taken on the challenge of selecting and showcasing quality writing from across the spectrum of poetic styles and is looking forward to reading your submissions.

These submissions should consist of three poems that, together, add up to less than one hundred lines. Please email them as attachments (Word or PDF) to glasgowreview [at] gmail [dot] com, writing “Poetry Submission” in the subject line.

Keep ’em coming!

The Glasgow Review of Books (ISSN 2053-0560) is an online journal which publishes critical reviews, essays and interviews as well as writing on translation. We accept work in any of the languages of Scotland – English, Gàidhlig and Scots.

We aim to be an accessible, non-partisan community platform for writers from Glasgow and elsewhere. We are interested in many different kinds of writing, though we tend to lean towards more marginal, peripheral or neglected writers and their work. 

Though, our main focus is to fill the gap for careful, considered critical writing, we also publish original creative work, mostly short fiction, poetry and hybrid/visual forms.
