About Us

Red Ogre Review

We are an independent press for poetry, prose poetry, and visual art founded in October 2021 by Creative Writing Master’s graduates of Lancaster University (United Kingdom).

Why the Name?

Geoffrey of Monmouth wrote about how, in folklore, ogres lived in ancient Britain before human civilization. We thought it sounded catchy!
