Pennine Platform is a 60-page, perfect-bound poetry magazine, published twice a year in May and November. Independent and completely self-supporting, it is one of the longest surviving little magazines in the UK, having started publication in 1973. It was initially the offshoot of Pennine Poets, a poetry workshop based in the West Riding of Yorkshire, with which it still retains informal connections. Though with local roots, it has an international reach. It has published poets from several European countries and from five continents; and among its subscribers are Harvard and the Bibliothèque Nationale de France.
