The Black Herald is an international bilingual (English-French & other languages) literary magazine, based in Paris & London. Edited by Blandine Longre & Paul Stubbs, the magazine’s aim is to publish original world writers not necessarily linked in any way by ‘theme’ or ‘style’. Writing that we deem can withstand the test of time and resist popularization–the dangers of instant literature for instant consumption. Writing capable of escaping the vacuum of the epoch.
Tips From the Editor
Please send no more than 3 to 5 poems or 1 story or extract (not more than 3000 words) or 2 essays (not more than 2000 words) per issue, with address, e-mail and a short factual biography/bibliography (3/4 lines). We also welcome translated poetry and fiction from any language (French and English included) to the English or to the French—in that case, please send also the original text, making sure you have the permission (from the writer and/or the translator and/or the publisher of the original text) to have the original text and its translation published in a print magazine. Before sending any work, we strongly advise writers to read our previous issues so as to gauge the writing we publish.
