Charm Offensive is beautifully produced, something to get your hands on if you can.Continue reading “Charm Offensive”

Tears in the Fence 47

  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.Continue reading “Tears in the Fence 47”
