English Kills Review is an online magazine covering books, authors, and writing with an emphasis on New York City. Founded in 2012, English Kills Review engages the literary community while highlighting noteworthy books and authors.


Money, it turned out, was exactly like sex. You thought of nothing else if you didn’t have it and thought of other things if you did.
— James Baldwin

At this time, the site does not generate revenue, although there are Bookshop.org links in some places. We cannot offer to pay contributors. As with most literary publications, we aspire to offer contributors fair pay for writing, but also every year consider shutting down because of the cost of producing and maintaining the website.
