We’re delighted to announce the launch of HUMAN, the Honest Ulsterman Archive Magazine Network a free and accessible online Irish small literary magazine archive that has the Honest Ulsterman as its cornerstone.

Magazines, particularly those before the Internet age are the most ephemeral of objects and yet small literary magazines played (and still play) an intrinsic part in the development of major literary talent.

A literary magazine archive can highlight trends in local literature and indicate the literary response to important local, national and international historical events of the era. It can illustrate publication trends over time and indicate aesthetic, stylistic and technological advancement in design and print methodologies. 

We are always on the lookout for any relevant archival material and looking for people to contribute thoughts and opinions to our blog so feel free to contact us at [email protected]verbal.co or on 028 71266946.

The latest edition of the Honest Ulsterman is now available. Featuring poetry, short stories, articles, interviews and contemporary art from local and international writers and artists. We hope you enjoy it!
