What Is RAUM?

Wir sollen heiter RAUM um RAUM durchschreiten,

An keinem wie an einer Heimat hängen,

Der Weltgeist will nicht fesseln uns und engen,

Er will uns Stuf ’ um Stufe heben, weiten.  

— Hermann Hesse, Stufen, 1941

RAUM is a Glasgow-based poetry magazine which publishes new and established writers from all over the world. We are attempting to archive and preserve the how and who of life in all its spaces. We draw our title from RAUM in Hermann Hesse’s poem Stufen, as we all move through existence, room by room.
