Acumen Publications has been around since 1985. During that time we have introduced new poets to the poetry world, introduced well-known poets to new audiences and published many poems which have become favourites with our readers.
- is a serious magazine with a sense of humour, the ironic and the satiric.
- is a humorous magazine with a sense of the philosophic, political and metaphysical aspects of poetry.
- features artistically designed covers which have always been acclaimed and often cause comment in their own right.
Acumen surrounds its poetry with articles of poetic interest; memoirs, critical articles, assessments of poets both past and present. A particular highlight is our interviews with poets: these dwell on the poet’s work, their poetic outlook and only rarely on more personal aspects.
