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.

The success of his novel All the King’s Men, and the movie made from it two years later, overshadowed his more lasting contribution as a poet, but he was honored in every fashion possible during his lifetime, both by fellow writers and by his country.
