“Excellent”

Carol Ann Duffy, the Guardian

The North is a literary magazine published twice a year by The Poetry Business, and is essential reading for anyone who loves contemporary poetry. Each issue includes: a lively range of international poetry by new and established writers, book reviews from mainstream publishers to smaller presses; critical articles; conversations with writers; and features such as ‘Poets I Go Back To…’ and our celebrated ‘Blind Criticism’ close-readings.
