Neon Literary Magazine

Welcome to Neon Literary Magazine. We publish three issues a year in print and online, and feature fiction, poetry, photography, comics and art. Each edition mixes magical realism with dark and strange literary writings. There is slipstream. There is surrealism. There is the bizarre and unexpected.

The magazine has been described variously as “utterly compelling”, “unsettling” and “like a dream which you can’t stop thinking about even after you’ve woken up”. We like that last description most of all.

Neon is based in the UK, but publishes writers from anywhere in the world. The magazine is available for free online (although we are very happy when readers donate or buy print copies, as it helps us keep on publishing).
