About

From George Orwell to Christopher Hitchens and Virginia Woolf to Claire Tomalin, the New Statesman has for more than 100 years been host to the finest writing and the sharpest critics. We continue that tradition here on the culture section of the NS website, where you’ll find some of the best content from the weekly magazine, as well as regular online exclusives: reviews, interviews, opinion pieces and news stories covering literature, art, music, theatre, film, comics and videogames.

You can find us on Twitter as @NS_Culture. If you are interested in contributing, please see our contributor guidelines. Poetry submissions for the magazine should go to poetry@newstatesman.co.uk.
