LPM is recognised as a place to encounter the best of traditional and innovative new writing. Founded in 2008 by Anna Robinson, LPM grew out of a long poem workshop run by Mimi Khalvati. The magazine is published bi-annually, with launches at the Barbican Library in London. Since its inception the editors have striven to publish an equal number of women and men and to foster a sense of community and engagement across languages, cultures and countries. They are keen to promote diversity of form and content, are interested in both the traditional and the innovative, and aim to represent a diverse range of poets and poetic styles.
Editors: Linda Black and Claire Crowther
