Raceme is a Bristol-based literary magazine, now published by Raceme Publications, edited by Matthew Barton with co-editors David Briggs and Dominic Fisher.

The main emphasis of the magazine is on poetry and writing about poetry, based in the South West, but ranging far beyond that. We are interested in conversations of all kinds between poets and about poetry, and in the eight issues so far have earned a growing reputation as an innovative, high-quality magazine much valued by its readers. 

For submissions (poems, reviews and writing on poetry) please contact the editors at raceme.editorial@gmail.com 

Publication dates: twice a year in spring and autumn

Issue 8 is out now
