We're thrilled to announce the publication of our second issue. And a very fine thing it is too, featuring new poems by:
Derek Adams, Rosemary Appleton, Charles Bane, Jr., Sue Burge, Pippa Chapman, Cardinal Cox, Alexandra Davis, Sarah Doyle, Philip Dunkerley, Norbert Hirschhorn, Matt Howard, Paul Howarth, Sue Lewis, Elizabeth Lewis Williams, Felicity Notley, Dominic O'Sullivan, Helen Overell, Sarah Passingham, Ilse Pedler, Elisabeth Sennitt Clough, Paul Stephenson and Heidi Williamson.
As you can see, it also has some rather gorgeous cover art, thanks to local artist Valerie Sims.
We're holding a launch event at Ely's Babylon Arts Gallery on Wednesday 4th May, with readings from many of the poets featured in the magazine. There are a limited number of seats available so if you'd like to come along, please contact us (soon!) using this form.
Meanwhile, we're looking forward to the 2016 Fenland Poet Laureate Awards. Editor Jonathan Totman will be on BBC Radio Cambridgeshire between 2 and 3pm this afternoon (March 21st) talking about Fenland Poetry and the FPL Awards. Editor Mary Livingstone is one of the shortlisted entrants for next year!
