Ten Years of Long Poem Magazine

Join editors Linda Black and Claire Crowther and poets Mimi Khalvati, Anne Ryland, Mark Goodwin, Timothy Adès and Adnan al-Sayegh to celebrate the magazine's 10th birthday.

Balladeers, modernists, surrealists, confessionals: any kind of poet can feature in LPM if their poetry takes skilful advantage of the glorious opportunities of the long poem. Ten Years of Long Poem Magazine showcases the variety and power of the form.

Issue 20 marks the tenth year of Long Poem Magazine. LPM is ambitious for contemporary poetry, reaching across continents to find the many ways of extending a poem, presenting the widest variety of stylistic approaches and attracting both major and emerging poets.
