Writers of the Front Line [UK]:
In September 1936, the literary magazine Contemporary Poetry and Prose gave the whole of its back cover to just six words: 'Support the Spanish People against Fascism.' The October issue carried the same stark injunction. By way of variety, the November edition directed its readers to 'Support all meetings and demonstrations to end the farce of 'non-intervention'.' Gradually the back-page advertisements got tougher; instead of asking for sonnets, villanelles and short stories, they started asking for money to buy guns. The words 'Arms for Spain' appeared in block capitals. Eventually, in autumn 1937, it closed down with the words: 'This is the last number of Contemporary Poetry and Prose as the editor is going abroad for some time.'
