Robert Herring (1903 — 1975) was a Scottish (and Welsh) writer and poet, remembered as an early film critic and editor of the significant literary magazine Life and Letters.

Robert Herring was assistant editor of The London Mercury from 1925 to 1934. He took over editorship of Life and Letters in 1935, when it was purchased by Bryher, and held it for about 15 years, working initially with Petrie Townsend. The first issue featured Mary Butts, Murray Constantine, H. D., Sergei M. Eisenstein, Havelock Ellis, Andr Gide, Horace Gregory, Kenneth Macpherson, Lotte Reininger, Osbert Sitwell, Gertrude Stein, and Eric Walter White. It continued to publish major figures, including Henry Miller and Dylan Thomas. The title was Life and Letters Today, but changed back, when the publication took over the London Mercury and Bookman titles.

Herring became one of the closest of H. D. and Bryher's friends. He had associated with them since Bryher's interest in experimental film in the late 1920s, taking part in the 1929 Iceland film expedition with Paul Robeson where he plays a gay pianist.
