192 Poetry Ezine

Submissions for Issue 3 are open March 1st to March 31st 2021

192 Magazine takes its name from the original directory enquiries phone number here in the UK, so we thought that it would offer a nice sense of symmetry. We are looking to produce a magazine that showcases the best that the contemporary moment has to offer. We like good poetry, whatever that looks like, so please send us your best, favourite or weirdest work, and hopefully it'll find a home here.

We are not massive, nor do we have any influence beyond our sphere, but we hope that our little voice will turn into a roar over the coming years. So stick with us.

To begin with we will only be publishing as an electronic magazine. As things progress we hope to take this to a physical format.
