The summer issue of The High Window has been released this week, and I’m pleased to bring news that it contains two of my poems – “The Long Drive North” and “Remembrance Day”. Clicking on my name in the list will parachute you into the appropriate place, although there is so much fine writing to admire within it’s worth plunging in anywhere.
This is my second appearance in THW, following on from the publication of “The Martian View of Earth”, “Cross-country Champion” and “Stars” in 2017. I’m very grateful to editor David Cooke for once again choosing to publish my work.
I’m really pleased to have had a poem accepted for the most recent issue of Riggwelter, a journal I’ve been following closely and admiring since its beginnings.
You can find “What they do to chickens” – and read the rest of issue #22 – by clicking here. Big thanks to editor Amy Kinsman for including my poem.
Delighted to report that Kate Garrett has very kindly included one of my poems – “Monoblockheads” – in the latest issue of the ever-splendid Picaroon Poetry. You can check out the whole fabulous issue here.
This is my second time in the pages of PP, after the appearance of “Eve and her mother have a little chat” in 2017. It’s good to be back there. Thanks to Kate for the thumbs-up, and to you for reading.
I’m delighted to have two of my poems – “Snow falling on the ocean” and “Recovery Position” included in morphrog18.
My thanks to Jeremy Page and Peter Stewart, editors at morphrog.
My prolonged period of hogging the stage at Eunoia Review has come to an end today, and it feels appropriate that it ends as it began – a poem set in a bar, with musical references. This is actually a complete coincidence, one that I wasn’t aware of when I submitted the poems, which were sent – and have appeared on the site – in alphabetical order.
You’ll find “Walking into a bar, midway through Blue Train” here. My thanks again to Ian Chung for granting me such an extended tenure.
It’s something of an early Christmas present to see my poem “At Nemo’s Bar” appearing at Eunoia Review today.
This is the first of ten of my poems that ER‘s editor, Ian Chung, has selected for publication over the coming days (I’m still a little taken aback by this, to be honest) and I’m incredibly grateful to Ian for giving so much time and space to my writing. Another of my poems, “Settlement”, appeared here in 2016.
Best wishes for anything you may be celebrating over the coming period.
I’m very pleased to report that the latest issue of Runcible Spoon contains my appropriately-titled poem “Spoons“.
Big thanks to Kathleen and David Strafford for giving this poem a home.
This morning I took delivery of a copy of Issue Twenty-Two of Under The Radar magazine, published by Nine Arches Press, which contains my poem “Hypnotherapy”.
It’s a beautiful publication full of excellent writing. I’m honoured to be a part of it, and looking forward to reading it from cover to cover.
I’m very grateful to Jane Commane, editor and director of Nine Arches Press, for choosing to include this poem.
It’s a treat to have my somewhat potty-mouthed poem “Lawrence” featuring over at Algebra Of Owls today, one of my favourite places in the webosphere.
I’m very grateful to the editorial team of Paul Vaughan, Nick Allen and Alicia Fernandez for granting me a third appearance here, following on from 2017’s “Ride” and “One Last Cigar”.
Very pleased to have my poem “Factory Gates” appearing at the ever-lovely Poetry Village today. Many thanks to editor David Coldwell for finding space for it.
