Founded by poets Mariah Whelan and Joe Carrick-Varty in 2019, bath magg is an online poetry magazine and a home for the best new writing. Our aim is to offer a platform for both established and emerging poets to share a space.

We publish three times a year, and are regularly open for unsolicited submissions. Please check our submissions page for details.
