Editorial: Douglas Clark

submit if they have some point to
make. This is not an academic journal and stress lies on readability.
The remit is the world of poetry in the broadest sense.
Submissions or comments should be sent to
This skeleton issue shuts down the magazine for the summer.
No more submissions will be accepted until late September.
Claire Smith gives us a poem remembering Ted Hughes and we have
Ann Skea's article on Ted Hughes' Memorial Service.

poems from Gary Lehmann and a story by him.

Irish poetry sites. The database containing past contributions
remains available and is easily available through the
