“Oxford Poetry is over 100 years old. It is probably the oldest dedicated poetry magazine in the world today. The magazine was started in 1910 by Oxford undergraduates and published by Basil Blackwell. Previous editors have included Aldous Huxley, Siegfried Sassoon, W.H. Auden, Louis MacNeice, Kingsley Amis, Geoffrey Hill, John Fuller, John Lanchester and Robert Macfarlane. In the 1980s, Mick Imlah, Nicholas Jenkins and Bernard O’Donoghue revived it as a more outward-looking journal – no longer restricted to publishing student poetry but maintaining a connection with the university.”
