Archives and History

Alliterati Magazine is a tradition that started in Newcastle University, in North East England. Originally a paper publication that was irregularly produced and read only by students of the English Department the publication moved to this, its current online home in Autumn 2010. It has steadily gathered a much larger audience from across the world since.
