Magazines: Versal

October 22, 2009

Behold! Our magazine holdings!


We subscribe to many magazines, periodicals and journals. The current issues are housed on open shelves and available for anyone to use, as above, and the back issues are archived in the stacks behind them. Need to see a Chapman from the 80s, or an Eildon Tree from a year ago? They’ll be there. We try to cover all titles produced in Scotland, and also collect from the rest of the UK, and from Europe. You can buy some of the magazines here too – we stock about 15 of the titles for sale. You can see a full list of the ones we take on our website.

On having a lunch time scan, my eyes were drawn, once again, to Versal:


Versal, published each May by wordsinhere, is the only literary magazine of its kind in the Netherlands and publishes new poetry, prose & art from around the world. If you’d like to submit, the submission guidelines can be found on their website. If you’d like to take a closer look, we have a copy (currently on Peggy’s desk…) here in the library. A wander through their website has unearthed their new blog!

I leave you with a cartoon therein that I really like.
