- DEDICATED TO THE BEST IN POETRY
‘The Interpreter’s House’, which celebrated its sixteenth birthday in
February 2012, is looking for excellent poetry and short stories.
Over 500 writers have appeared in our pages, some very distinguished (Elizabeth Bartlett, Ruth Bidgood, Alan Brownjohn, Toby Litt, Sheenagh Pugh, Carole Satyamurti, Penelope Shuttle, R.S. Thomas) and some for the first time ever.
We appear in February, June and October
Issue 49 is out now and issue 50 will appear in June edited by Simon Curtis. Bedford Poetry competition details 2012-13 in June issue.
It will continue under the editorship of Simon Curtis
As a result, both subscription and submission requests should now be sent through to him at 9 Glenhurst Rd, Mannamead, Plymouth PL3 5LT
The pieces in ‘The Interpreter’s House’ issue 46 are quite unusual, as the previous
editor Merryn Williams looked for ‘the union of simplicity and mystery which
makes writing memorable’. The first issue was interesting because of this
third dimension; the works mutate and change meanings so they are exciting to reread.
‘One of the most impressive small magazines around just now’
