The magazine

Structo is a literary magazine. It was founded in 2008 and is nominally UK-based, although its staff are scattered all over Europe and the rest of the world.

Each issue contains remarkable new short stories and poetry from all around the world, alongside essays and interviews with authors and others. After 20 issues heavily focussed on print, we recently switched things up to go digital-first. Now, once the complete biannual issue has appeared online, it is capped with a beautiful print edition.

We publish writing we love, whether from established writers or new voices. We strongly encourage submission of works in translation and writing which plays with genre.

Structo is completely independent, not-for-profit and carries no advertising. Each member of the magazine team volunteers their time. We receive no grant funding, and rely entirely on sales, donations and income from Structo Press to publish the magazine.

Structo Press was founded in 2016. It has published chapbooks by Vicki Jarrett, Christina Seymour and David Russomano. The first book project from Structo Press, a new translation of El Llano in flames by Juan Rulfo, was published in October 2019.
