“One of the best little magazines” – Pascale Petit
Championing new writing
For fifteen years, Brittle Star has been publishing scintillating poems and short stories from new and early-career writers, many of whom have seen their work in print for the first time. We have a growing reputation for being one of the first ports of call for new writers on the path to publishing their debut collections.
Heralding quieter voices
Poetry and short fiction has bloomed in the last twenty or so years with a renaissance of high quality independent presses. Their voices might not be as loud as the major presses but the quality of their books reflects just as much commitment to literature. We are delighted to publish new work from established writers from independent publishers.
Brittle Star is a not-for-profit magazine published twice a year. It receives no funding and is produced on a voluntary basis by a small team of dedicated writers and arts professionals.
