About Us

Clover & White was founded and is edited by Nicola Bourne & Alice Rose, who wanted to create an online literary magazine that publishes all writers but with a real focus on showcasing the talents of underrepresented and emerging authors.

Nicola & Alice met whilst studying Creative Writing at University and therefore understand the difficulties facing new writers as they try to get published. They are also acutely aware of the vast talent and exciting voices that can be found within emerging and underrepresented writers and wanted to create a platform that would really shine a light on those authors.

Our first piece was published on 5th May 2019.
