About the Magazine

Ink Drinkers Magazine was born when the editor found out that the term ‘ink drinker’ is the French version of ‘bookworm’ and thought ‘hey that could be a good name for a litmag’.

We release four issues a year, on the solstice and equinox dates. Each issue has a theme: the solstice themes are chosen by the editor, and the equinox themes are chosen by you, on our twitter.

We love to be made to feel, to get lost in the words – to be made into ink drinkers by your work.

About the Editor

CTM is a poet based in the rural north east of England. He is more than a little obsessed with the way that language works, and the way poetry works to convey emotions that are often highly specific to the author in a way that can be understood more universally by its audience.

At present, his research is centered around translation and retelling of Old English poetry. In 2020 he published the traveler’s guide to the new wor(l)d, an adaptation of the poem The Seafarer, and his current research is based around the ways Beowulf informs our sense of national identity.

He holds a BA(Hons) in English and Creative Writing, and an MA in Medieval Studies, both from Royal Holloway University of London, which is also where he is based as a PGR.

He can be found on WordPress, Twitter, or at ctmpoet@gmail.com
