THE LIFTED BROW IS OUR QUARTERLY PRINT LITERARY MAGAZINE. IT'S WHERE IT ALL STARTED BACK IN 2007; IT'S THE CORE OF TLB; IT'S WHAT WE ARE BEST KNOWN FOR.
In each and every issue of The Lifted Brow you will find a combination of work: essays, commentary, columns, criticism, fiction, poetry, interviews, comics, visual art, and more. Our current issue is full of such terrific work – do buy a copy, or even subscribe.
In previous eras The Lifted Brow looked and was different: once upon a time it was a bi-yearly perfect-bound book-journal, and for a few years it was a bi-monthly newsprint tabloid. It is currently a high-quality quarterly magazine with full-colour page sections interspersed with the written pieces. Issues are published in March, June, September and December.
In the pages of The Lifted Brow we have published more than two million words from more than 1200 contributors. You can see many of their faces here.
