Brief History of New London Writers
New London Writers, was a zine in the late 1990’s, produced out of a tiny studio flat in East London.
Quentin Crisp supported the zine with an elegant poem, written in lavender Ink.
Crisp issued a protest from the heart about homophobia and oppression, a testament to his undaunted spirit.
Other luminaries were Bette Bourne of Bloolips, Suzanne Moore and novelist Bill Brody. A P Watt was one of the first agents to subscribe. When the magazine closed, the title – New London Writers – was adopted by the Arts Council for use in one of their awards schemes.
