NEVA (3 Nevsky Prospect), a monthly illustrated literary journal, founded in 1955 as an organ of the Leningrad Writers' Organisation by A. I. Chernenko who became its first editor; later the journal was edited by S. I. Voronin, followed by А. F. Popov, D. T. Khrenkov, and from 1984 by B. N. Nikolsky. The birth of a new literary journal in the mid-1950s became a significant event in the light of the events of 1946, when two journals Zvezda and Leningrad were subjected to slashing criticism of the state officials. The journal strived to introduce the reader to a wide range of genres of Soviet literature, from both prominent and unfledged writers; it published journalistic material and literary critical reviews. Among others F. А. Abramov, Olga Bergholz, Y. P. German, Daniil Granin, М. А. Dudin, V. D. Dudintsev, V. А. Kaverin, V. V. Konetsky, V. F. Panova, L. Panteleev, Alexander Solzhenitsyn, the Strugatsky brothers, N. S. Tikhonov, L. K. Chukovskaya, Мikhail Sholokhov regularly contributed for the journal. A number of Neva's publications, which appeared after a campaign against censorship became momentous in the country's literary life. Traditionally the journal gave a rich exposure to St. Petersburg's history and culture in its sections, documentary material and archival publications. Entire thematic issues entitled The Images of St. Petersburg were devoted to the city's 300th anniversary. In 1991 the Neva Journal publishing-house was established, since 1997 it has also accommodated the Nevograf cultural centre, which regularly host art exhibitions.
