The BitterSweet Review is a publishing platform dedicated to the advancement of queer literature and visual culture. Initiated in London by a group of international writers, artists and scholars, it was born out of a desire to build community in times of hardship. Its activities include a biannual magazine, artists limited editions and writing workshops.

The BitterSweet Review recognises that the literary world is too often promotes a high-brow, elite and monolithic culture which marginalises queer makers and ideas.

The BitterSweet Review wants to change that. We want to empower a young generation of queer artists and writers to make work that matters to them. We want to engage in meaningful, cross-generational conversations with our peers, regardless of backgrounds and qualifications.
