Looming (English: Creation) is the oldest literary magazine in Estonia.[1]


The magazine was established in 1923 by the Estonian writer Friedebert Tuglas. Its purpose was the publication and popularization of Estonian contemporary literature. Virtually all known Estonian authors have contributed to the journal.[citation needed]

During the Soviet occupation of Estonia, Looming was controlled by the Writers' Union of the Estonian Soviet Socialist Republic.

Currently, the publication of Looming is jointly funded by the Estonian Ministry of Culture, the State Kultuurkapital Foundation and the Estonian Writers' Union. The latter appoints the editor-in-chief of the magazine, who is responsible for the content. It is published monthly. The editorial office is based in Tallinn.
