Archive and Poets
Editorial: Douglas Clark
This was an occasional magazine with a core of critical articles on
poetry. Supplemented by a list of the poets whose work is available in this
Webspace. A few poems and short stories were published for decoration
but what this magazine was really about was articles.
This was not an academic journal and stress lay on readability.
The remit was the world of poetry in the broadest sense.
The magazine ran for fifteen issues from 1997 to 2000
but it became extremely difficult
to find articles of a suitable quality so it was terminated.
Many thanks to all the contributors, and their work remains
available in the Archive.
