ABOUT THE MAGAZINE
The Continental Literary Magazine is a high-quality, beautifully-produced international literary quarterly in which pop culture meets high art.
Classy, edgy and Central European, this English-language magazine features fiction, nonfiction, interviews, poetry, photography, painting and more. Launched in late 2021, it serves as a shared platform providing a space for American writers, intellectuals, and other creatives to exchange ideas with their Central and Eastern European counterparts.
Each luxurious issue of The Continental Literary Magazine is focused on a different theme. Motifs have included youth and beauty, cravings, prejudice, faith, and noir; upcoming issues will explore, broadly, the concepts of beasts, the future, the grotesque, and borders. The rich array of content runs the gamut from an essay on “Big Brother” as an example of American societal rot to a Slovak police procedural crime fiction short story to beautifully produced pages of oil on canvas works from a Hungarian Artist of Merit.
American contributors and interview subjects have included New York Times bestselling author Roxane Gay; linguist and activist Noam Chomsky; commentator Fran Lebowitz; music journalist Legs McNeil; Democratic Presidential aspirant Marianne Williamson; and filmmaker Abel Ferrara. International contributors have included the award-winning young art photographer Flóra Borsi (Hungary); the internationally recognized hyperrealist painter, István Nyári (Hungary); the iconic portrait photographer Tony Notarberardino (Australia); and the award-winning Ukrainian poet Iya Kiva.
Sophisticated, stylish, and cool, this substantive periodical (winner of the Silver Award for Print Editorial category at the prestigious 2022 International Design Awards) looks like a high-end book series on your shelf with issues that can either be devoured in one sitting or read in short segments as the mood strikes.
The Continental Literary Magazine provides a distinctive reading experience for people who enjoy publications such as The New Yorker, The Paris Review, The New York Review of Books, The Nonconformist, The Atlantic and Interview magazine–but in a book-bound format. It is available across the United States at Barnes & Noble and Books-a-Million (BAM!) bookstores with additional North American distribution forthcoming; readers can also subscribe or buy single issues online.
