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.

Masters wrote verse all his life, publishing collections from 1898 until 1942, but he is remembered chiefly for his Spoon River Anthology of 1915, a wondrous collection of interconnected poems about a fictional town in western Illinois: timeless and beautiful.

Suggested Reading Poems Spoon River Anthology, 1915. Selected Poems, 1925. Illinois Poems, 1941.
