Receive FREE digital copies of the current and previous issues of the London Reader as soon as you register as a patron at any Rewards tier! Your first contribution to the London Reader will not be charged to your Patreon account until the release of the next issue.


Featuring great stories from thought-provoking perspectives, the London Reader magazine presents contemporary voices in creative writing. The fiction, poetry, creative non-fiction, and interviews in each issue are curated, as if in a gallery, in order to explore a single theme, genre, region, or topic.

By subscribing to the London Reader, you're directly supporting the writers whose work is within its pages. Issues are cooperatively owned by their contributors, and each writer receives a proportionate share of your subscription amount. In addition, the curator of each issue designates a charity, detailed within, which receives 10 percent of revenue from the issue.

New issues are released four times per year on the first day of March, June, September, and December.

Current Issue:
After the Flood
Stories and Poems for our Changing World

Tides reclaim coastal cities, forest fires choke the sky, heat waves scorch the plains, and in the eye of this catastrophe are the stories of families and communities—of fear and hope. The world faces a crisis, and we must search our souls for answers.

How can climate change fit into our stories? This issue of the London Reader re-maps the Earth with new and alternative visions of the present and the future. Stories and Poems for our Changing World faces crisis head-on, but the authors within come to many different conclusions. The cli-fi creative writing in this issue begins with pessimism, revealing the extent of natural disasters. It then revisits and re-evaluates our connection to the natural world. Finally, it finds a path forward, through calamity, with renewed ambition to make a difference.

After the Flood features an interview and fiction from Kim Stanley Robinson, the award-winning author of New York 2140 and the Mars Trilogy. The other creative works within include thought-provoking short stories from Elle Wild, Steve Carr, Hannah Wright, Kai Thomas, Katherine McMahon, Bell Selkie, and Omar El Akkad, author of American War; moving poems from Memye Curtis Tucker, Janette Ayachi, Ivy Archer, Colleen West, Matthew Gwathmey, Alice Mills, Robbi Nester, and Jill Evans;  and stunning artwork from Artem Mirolevich, Christina Riley, Claire Price, David Ambarzumjan, and Ira Joel Haber, featured in the MoMA and Guggenheim.

We face a flood of unprecedented destruction. What will come after is up to us.


The London Reader is also available by subscription for Kindle on Amazon.com and Amazon.co.uk.
