I’ve just received my copy of Tears in the Fence 47, which I think is one of the strongest issues yet. Of course I would say that, as I’m Associate Editor. I’m particularly glad to see strong new work by younger British poets such as Chris McCabe, James Wilkes, Hannah Silva, Simon Turner and Joe Dunthorne.
There are reviews of Todd Swift’s Winter Tennis, David Caddy’s Man in Black and lots, lots more. In my regular column, From The Other Side Of The Fence, I discuss the difficulties of creating a career in poetry, and ask ‘if you were to get a tattoo of a poet on your back, which poet would it be and why?‘
There’s also an updated typeface and this issue comes in a rather fetching cover – see above for comparisons with various mustards.
