About BRAG Writers

BRAG Writers literary magazine was established as a semi-functional group in January 2020 whilst at Manchester's own Mother Mac's pub, and saw the inaugural issue go to print in October of the same year. Since then we have been a magazine dedicated to publishing poetry, short fiction, smoke-long fiction and exclusive interviews with artists and writers. The BRAG team is comprised of graduates from Manchester Metropolitan University and Newcastle University. 

BRAG features work from new and established writers alike. Notably, we are home to exclusive poetry from Dr Paul Evans in Issue I, and Karen Solie in Issue II. 

The Listed Advocates for BRAG Writers literary magazine include Dr Paul Evans, Andrew McMillan, Joe Stretch, and Nicholas Royle. 

BRAG is currently self-funded and all the proceeds go back into BRAG in order to support the growth of our community. To support BRAG: Buy BRAG
