About the Magazine



Founded in 1988 as the successor to The Welsh Review (1939-1948), Dock Leaves and The Anglo-Welsh Review (1949-1987), New Welsh Review is Wales’s foremost literary magazine in English.

For over twenty-five years, New Welsh Review 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.

New Welsh Review has 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, Terry Eagleton, Robert Minhinnick, Chris Meredith, Mary-Anne Constantine, Jem Poster, Edna Longley, Byron Rogers and Gillian Clarke provide just a snapshot of the high-calibre names that have appeared in the magazine over its history.

Today, New Welsh Review holds true to its original mission statement: to be dynamic, curious, lively and outward-looking, to commemorate the past but to celebrate contemporary excellence and new directions.

New Welsh Review is supported through core funding by the Welsh Books Council; since 2005, New Welsh Review has been hosted by Aberystwyh University Department of English and Creative Writing. Read more about supporters of New Welsh Review
