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.

kael.pngIt’s about time we raised a toast to the most influential (and perhaps the best) film critic of all time, who made or broke reputations for all of her twenty-four years at The New Yorker. Her books repay re-reading in these days of debased filmmaking, if only to remember cinema’s golden days.
