The New York Review of Books
With a worldwide circulation of over 135,000, The New York Review of Books has established itself, in Esquire‘s words, as “the premier literary-intellectual magazine in the English language.” It is the journal where the most important issues are discussed by writers who are themselves a major force in world literature and thought. Every two weeks, these writers publish essays and reviews of books and the arts, including music, theater, dance, and film—from Woody Allen’s Manhattan to Kurosawa’s version of King Lear.

Society for Editors and Proofreaders
Formed in November 1988, the SfEP now has about 2100 members (mostly in the UK) providing editorial services to publishers and a wide range of companies, government agencies and other bodies. The Society provides training and professional qualifications, and publishes the online Directory of Editorial Services provided by its members. The members communicate with each other via a number of popular membership-only forums, a growing repository of the Society's collective wisdom and experience, and the Society publishes the bi-monthly magazine Editing Matters.
Times Literary Supplement
The TLS was born in January 1902. Its first ever front page bashfully stated: “during the Parliamentary session Literary Supplements to ‘The Times’ will appear as often as may be necessary in order to keep abreast with the more important publications of the day”. Fortunately, that question of necessity was not left in the hands of literary journalists (who, we can imagine, might occasionally push for a holiday or two), and the title became a weekly one. A few years later, the TLS split entirely from The Times. Since then, we have prided ourselves on being the world’s leading journal for literature and ideas. Every week, we publish book reviews, book extracts, essays and poems from leading writers from around the world. We cover far more than just literature, featuring major articles on subjects from anthropology to zoology, philosophy to politics, comedy to psychology. We are the only major English-language publication to review books published in other languages, including French, Spanish, German, Italian and Russian. Each week, we also review the latest in fiction, film, opera, theatre, dance, radio and television. Our guiding principle for the selection of pieces remains twofold: is it interesting; and is it beautifully written?
