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.

Alice Munro, b. July 10, 1931

Over more than forty years and seventeen books, Alice Munro has made her bid for the title of world’s most respected short story writer, an honor bolstered by her perennial appearance on Nobel lists and her winning the 2009 Man Booker International Prize for her lifetime achievement. At the age of eighty, Munro continues to produce her deceptively simple and deep tales.
