History and profile
An earlier magazine was published under the title Poetry London: A Bi-Monthly of Modern Verse and Criticism. This publication was founded by Tambimuttu and the first issue was dated January/February 1939. The associated publishing imprint, Editions Poetry London, formed in 1943, produced some 70 books and pamphlets, including by Keith Douglas, G. S. Fraser, Henry Miller, Vladimir Nabokov and Kathleen Raine, before being discontinued in 1951.
In this current format it has existed since 1988 when it was a listings magazine. Despite the name, Poetry London publishes poetry from across the UK and the world. The current editorial team is headed by poet Ahren Warner. Previous poetry editors have included Colette Bryce, Pascale Petit and Maurice Riordan. The magazine also holds launch events and an annual competition.
