The Honest Ulsterman is a long-running Northern Ireland literary magazine that was established by James Simmons in 1968.
The Honest Ulsterman interactive magazine is more than the online version on your mobile.
This is not your typical magazine.
It has been reimagined in its structure, design and layout to reflect James Simmon’s ambition to bring about a revolution in the way we view the world to challenge us all to see life, through poetry and prose, as strange, fleeting and miraculous as it really is, to aspire to free thought and see beyond.
To access and read the content which is embedded within a fictional landscape and divided across features, poetry, prose and podcasts the reader has to unlock a series of puzzles. The puzzles have been designed to challenge and engage. By embracing this radical format for a literary magazine the Honest Ulsterman interactive makes explicit the idea that poetry, prose, reviews and articles have a superior cultural value beyond that of the economic. A value with which the reader must immerse his/herself to fully enjoy the benefits of the Honest Ulsterman world.
