About Scribner Magazine

The first incarnation of Scribner’s Magazine was launched in 1887 and flourished until 1939, introducing new writers and publishing in short form many of the authors who wrote books for Scribner: Henry James, Edith Wharton, Theodore Roosevelt, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Ernest Hemingway, Alan Paton, and Thomas Wolfe. Scribner has always stood for quality and in our long history we have published fresh voices across all categories: award-winning literary fiction, nonfiction that introduces transformative ideas, memoirs embraced by millions of readers, thrillers, essays, humor, poetry, and the gold standard of cookbooks.

We are reviving Scribner Magazine for the digital age, with the intent to pull back the curtain, to reveal a more intimate look at writers and publishers: where writers work, the music they listen to, the seeds of their books, what they talk about with other writers, even what they cook and how they parent; how editors edit; the role of the art director, the book designer, the sales rep; what booksellers are reading. Every month there will be a story or chapter read out loud by its author. We will feature writing that you might have missed, and new writing from authors throughout the literary community.

Scribner Magazine: for behind-the-scenes insights on reading, on writing, on living.
