The New Shetlander is Scotland's longest running literary magazine, founded in 1947, and edited originally by Peter Jamieson. It has had a central role in Shetland's Literature since. For the greater part of its existence thus far, 1956 till 1998, the NS benefited from the tender editorial care of the brothers John J. Graham and Laurence I. Graham. In 1998, Alex Cluness and John Hunter took on the onerous task of following such a sterling team, after whom the Shetland Archivist and historian Brian Smith and the author Laureen Johnson followed.
