Welcome to the Home Page for Stand Magazine
Our Spring, 2016, issue features work by authors from England (James Byrne), Ireland (John Siberry), Cuba (Gustavo Firmat), and several of the United States--as well as translations from Russian, Portugeuse, and Japanese literature.
Stand has been a fixture on the British and world literary scene since 1952, when the first issue appeared in London. It has since moved to Leeds, then to Newcastle, and now back to University of Leeds.
A link to your right will connect to a spreadsheet alphabetized to index the authors who over the years have published in the magazine--such as Simon Armitage, Isaac Babel, Peter Carey, Fred D'Aguiar, Terry Eagleton, Anne Fitzgerald, Thom Gunn, Geoffrey Hill . . . . Martha Zweig. Stand was founded by the poet Jon Silkin, and writer-editors such as Elaine and Jon Glover, Rodney Pybus, Lorna Tracy, Ken Smith, and Jon Whale have all contributed regularly.
Stand is aimed at those specifically interested in new books, literature and creative writing. Our targeted readership is socially, economically and geographically diverse, but highly literate. Stand continues to publish new and established writers; see the "Submission Guidelines."
