The Drawbridge is an independent quarterly of thought, wit and reflection giving equal focus to literature and visual arts.
With each issue, authors and artists cast an unflinching look at a timely theme. The combination of ideas and insights brings you the best photography, artwork and writing, including classic fiction, new essays and short stories, many of which are published in English for the first time.
Originating as a full-colour newspaper, The Drawbridge is now available as a quarterly app for iPad. Additional versions for Kindle Fire, Android tablets and smartphones are in development.
The Drawbridge is published by FiveByOne, a not-for-profit company set up by the creative team behind the original print edition.
"A cunning construction of reinforcement and defence, The Drawbridge lives up to its name."
"It might rate as one of the most dramatic changes of visual direction ever ventured by a literary magazine. Or any kind of magazine... It's courageously reader-friendly, every bit as classy as the outsized original version, and it works. The subtle interconnections of the literary and the visual promise to make the new-look Drawbridge an essential read."
