Black Lamb


Now in its 14th year of publication, this magazine was created to offer the discerning reader a stimulating selection of excellent original writing. Black Lamb Review is a literate rather than a literary publication. Regular columns by writers in a variety of geographic locations and vocations are supplemented by features, reviews, articles on books and authors, and a selection of “departments,” including an acerbic advice column and a lamb recipe.


Black Lamb welcomes submissions from new writers. Email us.

stegner3Stegner became as well known in his lifetime for his teaching and mentoring of such writers as Edward Abbey, Thomas McGuane, Robert Stone, Larry McMurtry, and Ken Kesey as for his own novels, which is unfair. After all, he won both the Pulitzer and the National Book Award, and his works are uniformly moving, insightful, elegant, and wise.
