Adelaide – from the French form of the Germanic name Adalheidis, which was composed of the elements adal “noble” and heid “kind, sort, type”.

We believe that the craft of writing is a “noble sort” or rather a noble endeavor worthy of every praise. Thereby, the name of our publication was chosen accordingly – Adelaide.

Adelaide Literary Magazine is an independent international monthly publication, based in New York (US), and Lisbon (Portugal). Founded by Stevan V. Nikolic and Adelaide Franco Nikolic in 2015, the magazine’s aim is to publish quality poetry, fiction, nonfiction, artwork, and photography, as well as interviews, articles, and book reviews, written in English and Portuguese. Most of our content comes from unsolicited submissions.

We publish print, digital, and online editions of our magazine twelve times a year. The online edition is updated continuously. There are no charges for reading the magazine online.

Through our imprint Adelaide Books, we publish novels, memoirs, and collections of short stories, poems, and essays by contributing authors of our magazine. We believe that in doing so, we best fulfill the mission outlined in Adelaide Magazine.
