Some of our favourite poems from the magazine include “Jerusalem” by Daniel Dov Yadin, “Tell the Moon” by Shon Arieh-Lerer, “Water Lily” by Jake Orbinson, and “Icarus” by Christine Kwon.

The poems in this magazine speak to deeper levels of human psychology and creativity. Many poems published decades ago remain relevant to our times today.

The Westminster Review

The Westminster Review is not officially housed in a particular university as it is one of the oldest British publications still active today. It was founded back in 1823 by English Philosopher Jeremy Bentham and historian James Mill.

Initially, it was a journal for Philosophical Radicals, mostly young students and experts back then. Unfortunately, this journal is no longer active as its final issue was way back in 1914.

However, millions of people, mostly students from the UK reference the many published works in the past. Many emerging writers nowadays are familiar with at least one of these journals.

So, if you are an aspiring writer, we recommend you check these journals and other magazines we recommended in our previous blogs.
