ISSUE 24 . . .
. . . has arrived, and as usual we are delighted with it, our largest issue yet with 20 poems and an essay – Susie Campbell’s in depth study of Gertrude Stein’s ten-page poem ‘Rooms’. It’s an issue which investigates language and includes a wide variety of styles, from the Norfolk dialect of Naomi Foyle’s ‘ Ter Death Lay o’Boudiga’, to Adam Wyeth’s about:blank which he says began with ‘ a series of random speed-writing exercises’. We have a translation of John Genet’s ‘Fisherman , le Suquet’ by John Gallas, an extract from Khaled Hakim’s book length sequence ‘culled from notebooks’ made when he was hitchhiking between 1886-1988, Agnes Marton’s exploration of the jaguar corridor in Costa Rica, Terence Dooley’s acrostic, and many more gems. As Claire Crowther says in her editorial, ‘we are an eclectic journal’ – and of this we are very proud.
Don’t miss out on your copy – our last issue sold out very quickly!
