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.

We’ll never know what Sylvia Plath might have accomplished had she been able to put aside her demons. She was writing the best poetry of her life just before she died, and her novel The Bell Jar is a small classic.

Suggested Reading Poetry The Colossus and Other Poems, 1960. Ariel, 1965. Plath:Poems, 1998. Prose The Bell Jar, 1963. The Journals of Sylvia Plath, 1982.
