The Reader Magazine

Published quarterly since 1997, The Reader is the only magazine that offers the whole literary mix: new fiction and poetry, classic and neglected works, interviews with leading figures in the world of the arts, thought-pieces, advice for reading groups, research into reading and news from the world of books.

The Reader is one of the best things to thump through the letter box. . . . Full of pithy, passionate and precise things.
- Seamus Heaney

The Reader offers great writing wherever we can find it, presenting big names and new voices side by side.

Just what real readers need – good writing and good thinking about writing and reading.
- A. S. Byatt
