Bad Form was founded in 2019 to platform BIPOC writers. In 2016, less than 100 books by British BIPOC authors were published. There is a huge representation gap in the British publishing industry, and this needs to be fixed. Our quarterly magazine is written, designed, and illustrated by BIPOC contributors.
BIPOC stands for Black, Indigenous, and People of Colour
What is a literary review?
A snazzy magazine that includes reviews of books, essays, poems, and stories.
Why don't you accept non-BIPOC contributors? That's not fair.
There is a huge range of literary magazines that accept any contributors. This one does not.
Why do you review books by white people?
Because if we didn't, there wouldn't be many books for us to review.
