We're an online litmag focusing on poetry, essays and book reviews. We accept submissions from everyone and aim to showcase the best words from new and established writers. We'd love to grow into print.

what we believe

Brave and curious words are necessary. We don't think there should be any rules on what can and can't be written, and it's our passion to find and publish exceptional writing - wherever and whomever it might come from.

what that means

We'd love nothing more than to get our sticky fingers on your writing. We want grasping poems, floating essays and prodding reviews. We think it's important to hold contradictory words between the same pages at all times.

what makes us different

It's our aim to bring great writing to as many curious minds as possible. Accessibility is important to us, which is why this litmag will always be available for free. We think art and literature should act as equalisers.

how it's done

Twice a year we gather submissions and add up the ones we're crazy about until we have enough content to put together a full issue, which is then published right here under the internet's nose. We love it, and we hope you will too.


We're looking for energetic writers who'd like review books for us on a regular basis. The books will mainly be poetry collections, with the occasional non-fiction or poetry related autobiography thrown in. Ideally we're looking for people with some experience in reading and writing about poetry - but anyone is welcome to apply!

If you'd like to be considered, please drop us an email at submissions@littlestonejournal.co.uk with the subject heading 'Application', including a brief covering letter in the body of your email and ideally attaching at least three examples of your work. CVs are welcome but not required.


Founder & Editor-in-chief

Suzanne Antelme lives in the south of England and divides her spare time between scribbling poetry and drinking badly made coffee. She is currently studying through the Open University and is a three time winner of the Foyle Young Poets of the Year Award and a long-listee in the BBC Young Writers' Award.

Book Reviewer

Dana Collins was a Foyle Young Poet in 2019 and a shortlistee in the Wells Festival of Literature 2020 Young Poetry Prize. Her poetry focuses on womanhood and mental health, and her proudest achievement to date is using the word 'vajazzle' in an otherwise serious poem. Her work can be found on the Young Poets Network and in Little Stone Journal.
