"From South Africa to Spain, Belgium to Denmark, the U.K to Ireland, Chile to the Caribbean ..."

International, or Not?

___researched by Pamelyn Casto

By definition, we could call all electronic magazines 'international' as people from any country with an Internet connection can access them. But lists of recommended links often mention the same sites over and over again. Pam Casto went out in search of electronic lit magazines produced outside the United States, recommended by members of the international writing community. From South Africa to Spain, Belgium to Denmark, the U.K. to Ireland, Chile to the Caribbean, Hawaii to India by way of Australia and New Zealand, and points between, this is what she found. Some sites you'll recognize (Jacket, The Poetry Kit, Lynx: Poetry from Bath, The Animist, The Barcelona Review, The Richmond Review, Southern Ocean Review, The East Village and many more), others represent specific geographic, cultural, or linguistic areas. Together, they'll give you a glimpse of the incredible diversity in poetry and writing available on the web.
