St Botolph's Review was the student-made poetry journal from Cambridge University, England in 1956, which saw the first publication of Ted Hughes' poetry, at the launch of which Hughes met Sylvia Plath.[1] The first issue appeared on 26 February 1956.[1]

It was named for St Botolph's Church, Cambridge as one of its founders, Lucas Myers, lived at the rectory of St Botolph's Church in Cambridge.

A second edition was published in 2006.[1] A copy of the original journal was stored in the British Library in 2010.[2]


Led by Hughes, the other contributors were listed as: David Ross, Daniel Huws, Daniel Weissbort, Lucas Myers, Nathaniel Minton and George Weissbort.[3]
