Product Description


Gutter Magazine is the outstanding independent literary magazine publishing fiction and poetry from writers born and living in Scotland. The work you'll find here is in turns diverse, delicate and dangerous. But with contributions from every corner of Scotland, all the major countries of Europe, Canada, both coasts of the USA, the Antipodes and the Far East, it is, most of all, global in attitude. Gutter doesn't hold to any particular political outlook but wholeheartedly believes in the power of the creative imagination to challenge the status quo.

Press Reviews

'The quality, presentation and appearance of the magazine is magnificent. Maybe the most pleasing and impressive layout I've encountered in a small magazine of new writing.' Alan Warner, author of Morven Callar, The Man Who Walks and The Stars in the Bright Sky. 'it is as a showcase of the best new stories and poems that Gutter has made its name...Since its inception Gutter has grown to be the kind of broad and inclusive magazine of new writing Scotland needed. Couple the editorial nous with the sleek, uniform design and it is easy to see why a new Gutter is an eagerly anticipated event for anyone with an interest in Scottish writing, or writing generally.' The Skinny on Gutter 08 'The latest crop of new Scottish writing is a bumper one, with an abundance of excellent poems and prose.' The Skinny on Gutter 09
