The Wolf magazine is an independent poetry magazine published three times a year and based in London.[1] Established in April 2002 by Nicholas Cobic[1] and current editor James Byrne, The Wolf publishes emerging poets alongside more established writers from across the world. Poets recently featured include Adonis, Derek Walcott, Carolyn Forche, Charles Bernstein, John Kinsella, C.D. Wright, Niall McDevitt, Geraldine Monk and Ilya Kaminsky. A strong regard for international poetry is central to The Wolf's aesthetic, recent features have included introductions to contemporary Syrian, Ukrainian and Croatian poetry .

The magazine includes interviews with leading contemporary poets, poems, translations, book reviews and critical prose. Recent critical work has included pieces on Anne Carson, Muriel Rukeyser, John Ashbery, Kay Boyle, plus interviews with Charles Bernstein, Marilyn Hacker and Yusef Komunyakaa. Additionally, The Wolf features contemporary art work with an artist-in-residence in each issue, printing a centrefold of original work. Recently Reem Yassouf and Marcela Ramirez-Aza have published prints of their paintings in the magazine.

The Wolf magazine was, in 2008, given the support of the Arts Council, England. In 2010 it became fully independent again, relying entirely upon subscriptions.
