For over 30 years, New Welsh Review Ltd has been central to the Welsh literary scene in offering a vital outlet for the very best new fiction, creative non-fiction and poetry, a forum for critical debate and a rigorous and engaged reviewing culture.

We have published some of the greatest writers and thinkers from Wales and beyond; Dannie Abse, Paul Muldoon, P.D. James, Emyr Humphreys, Leslie Norris, Gwyneth Lewis, Les Murray, Rachel Trezise, Niall Griffiths, Owen Sheers, Tiffany Murray, Edna Longley, Byron Rogers and Gillian Clarke. In summer 2015 we rebranded the creative magazine as New Welsh Reader, to combine the appeal of the new while maintaining our traditions and track record.

We now have a fully searchable archive available, which goes back to 2000.

Female-led European literature with a focus on place in nonfiction, narrative voice in fiction, diversity in poetry and panache in photography and visuals. Illustrations by Margiad Evans/Peggy Whistler and Kreg Yingst. This edition celebrates female pioneers, freedom and nature’s own laws. In a two-part special on Margiad Evans, we appraise her artwork (including previously unseen drawings and illustrations) and her contribution to nature writing and environmental philosophy. A three-part feature on winter sport comprises prose by Jerwood awardwinning author Rachel Hewitt presenting the St Moritz milieu of author, sports photographer and pioneering Victorian mountaineer Lizzie Le Blond; the UK’s first curated collection of Le Blond’s breathtaking photography itself, and a paean to skating, past and present, cultural and physical, by Jay Griffiths, winner of the Orion and the Barnes & Noble Discover awards.
