Don’t Do It is a new cultural magazine. Run primarily out of London, its scope is nevertheless international, taking in fiction, poetry, critical writing and reviews from across the globe. Currently looking to its fourth issue, provisionally due May 2014, the magazine attempts to give a new perspective on art, culture and politics; as they say in their first letter from the editors, ‘one that seeks to express questions, rather than answers’. Avoiding the disinterest that often characterises literary magazines, Don’t Do It focuses on heartfelt critical inquiry coupled with a GSOH.
Previous articles in Don’t Do It have included pieces on travel, women’s rights, Samuel Beckett, the lyrics of Lou Reed, the practise of criticism, computer chess and Weird fiction. Don’t Do It has also published original poetry and fiction, including a short story from Bristol Prize-winner Paul McMichael.
Alongside its main issues, Don’t Do It runs a blog, Don’t Do It Occasionally, which publishes shorter pieces and up-to-the-minute reviews of theatre, art and literature, as well as commentary on politics.
