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.

Eliot, and Ezra Pound from the beginning of her career and went on to edit the cultural journal The Dial and to encourage such younger poets as Elizabeth Bishop, John Ashbery, and James Merrill. Her Collected Poems of 1951 won her many prizes, and she is also remembered for hoping for poets who can produce “imaginary gardens with real toads in them.”
