Why Did Lore Start?

Lore Publication started due to the founder’s disheartening experience with getting his stories out there to people that wanted to read them. Lore’s founder wanted a place to share his own work and the work of other creatives in the same situation as him. As a result, Lore was born. Being run and managed by Stewart, Lore aims to build a brand of trust and integrity in the writing and publishing world, with one main goal in mind.

We want to bring insightful media to insightful minds. Here at Lore Publication, that means bringing people stories and poems that inspire, motivate, shock, move, and themes that make people think.

Where is Lore Based?

Lore Publication was founded in Glasgow, Scotland. With Lore’s main presence remaining online via our website and social media, it has a limited physical presence in the real world.

This does not however restrict (in any way, shape or form) who can submit work to Lore Publication. We welcome submissions from any corner of the globe, from any writer young or old. We do not discriminate against writers in any form.

When starting out to get Lore Publication off the ground Stewart considered the many possible ways he could create his vision and dream of his own publication. In its initial start up days in 2018, Lore found it’s first home on the website known as Medium, then via Blogger, and now finally with it’s own website.

Our Socials

Twitter: for our latest updates, writing prompts and more.

Instagram: for writing prompts, and poetry.

While Lore does have a Facebook, Reddit, and Instagram account, it takes a lot of time to manage them all effectively which Lore’s founder doesn’t have the time to do at the moment. Lore instead wants focus it’s efforts on bringing out new content.
