Different is a small press poetry publication edited by Lilith Lorraine.

Different was begun in the 1940s and was devoted to poetry but also occasionally published fiction and articles. Writing published included both 'fantastical' and more mainstream poetry. It was a 32 paged publication released in Rogers, Arkansas, U.S.A up until the Autumn issue of 1951 (Vol 7 #3). It then reemerged in a 40 page digest sized format in Spring 1953 published in Floral Park, Long Island, New York, U.S.A. It ended with the Winter 1954 issue (Vol 8 #4).

Lilith Lorraine wrote about Different:

"Different was founded as a sincere attempt to use whatever influence we might attain to salvage some last remnants of American culture and to restore within the limits of that influence some of the lost glory of the poetry of earth. For poetry, as we have said before, is the atomic energy of the soul, which exploded against the battlements of hate and terror will level them in the dust of oblivion and leave the liberated soul free in an expanding universe."

Contributors included Stanton Coblentz, Francis Flagg, Robert Silverberg (Spaceship), Clark Ashton Smith and John Updike.

Lilith Lorraine also published the poetry magazines Challenge and Flame.
