The North is a great little magazine for those who love to be inspired and read some beautiful and witty poetry by brilliant poets who are both well known and also complete beginners. The magazine is very encouraging of the reader to submit their own work if they want to and encourages others to be creative and kick their writing skills into action.
The magazine will contain short poems as well as longer articles which provide commentary on one particular subject and provides examples of work within a particular genre. These sections are interesting and educational and also allow the reader to look at poetry in a different way and think about the meanings behind it as well as the cultural significance of the work.
The magazine will often contain what the creators call a ‘Blind Criticism’ which involves the editor printing a poem and asking two other poets to dissect and analyse it without knowing who wrote it or where they are from. The insights into the work are very telling and will often show readers what to look out for when reviewing a poem for themselves. The author of the poem will be printed at the back of the magazine so the reader can see who the author is and if the ‘blind’ poets were right in their assumptions.
