Strong Words was launched in 2018 by Ed Needham, the multi-award winning former editor of various magazines including Rolling Stone. It’s for people who love books, love reading about them, and need an entertaining, useful and reliable source of suggestions as to what to read next.
Published nine times a year, it covers new fiction and non-fiction in depth, including biographies and memoirs, history, photography, graphic novels and cookbooks. There are over 100 titles in every issue. It has developed a fanatical following who can’t get enough of its witty enthusiasm and its utter refusal to admit blurb, cliché and academic jargon. Strong Words is the magazine that leaves every reader saying, “That’s the book for me.”
