“From Switzerland” by Peter Robinson published by LONGITŪDINĒS

On 1 October, “From Switzerland”, Peter Robinson’s new sequence of poems, appeared on the LONGITŪDINĒS website, the first publication of this new founded magazine.

LONGITŪDINĒS is an arts and literature magazine, with annual print editions and online content. It is conceived as an arts and literary platform that gathers in one place the work of the most interesting writers and artists based in Europe. Its aim is the promotion and the dissemination of a European Art and Literature, at a time in which local politics seems to push towards the construction of walls and closure of borders. Its name LONGITŪDINĒS reflects this intention to cross boundaries.

The print edition includes the original texts alongside their English translation. Translations into other languages are published on the website when they become available.

LONGITŪDINĒS recognises the fundamental role covered by translation in the dissemination of culture and aims to make it an integral part of its project and to give translators a too often unrecognised credit. Translators who would like to collaborate are invited to get in touch with the editors at editors@longitudines.com.


LONGITŪDINĒS is now inviting submissions for its First Issue, due to be published in Autumn 2020. They are looking for artworks, and short prose, poetry and drama written in any European language.

Submitted artworks and texts must be previously unpublished. Multiple submissions are acceptable as long as we are notified immediately if they are accepted for publication elsewhere. Print quality artworks and texts in PDF must be submitted by 1 January 2020 to submissions@longitudines.com. All submissions must be accompanied by a short bio of the author. Texts should not exceed the following specifications:

Prose: 6,000 words

Poetry: 150 lines

Drama: 3,000 words

Submissions will be acknowledged. Authors will be notified of editorial decisions.
