Orbis Literary Journal


Orbis is a long-standing quarterly international literary journal, based in the UK, and edited by Carole Baldock.  Associate editor (Book Reviews): Nessa O'Mahony.
In every issue: poems, prose, articles, reviews, letters, featured writer section.
Plus the Orbis Poetry Index: magazine reviews, news items, competition listings.

Poems from the magazine are submitted annually to the Pushcart Prize in America and the UK’s Forward Prize. Although few UK Small Press publications are able to offer feedback, Orbis provides proofs with editorial suggestions.
