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.

Winton has won just about every prize an Australian novelist can, except the Booker, and he’s been nominated for that twice. His expansive novels give a vivid picture of their settings, mostly in coastal western Australia, and his strongly delineated characters sometimes reappear in later books. With Peter Carey, one of Australia’s very best.
