It has been a good week for digital poetry. The Galway Review is now playing host to four new poems, starting with the four-part sequence “Apologies for All Seasons“. Given the weather we have been having throughout the British Isles lately, this seems quite appropriate. It is followed by three other poems involving dark religious… Read more »

I am pleased to have four poems in Boston Poetry Magazine, a new journal focusing on poetry from New England (and, in my case, Old England). The poems will appear in the print version later this year, and are also now available to read on the magazine’s website. Enjoy.
Well, not quite. For all I know, we may be related. But imagine my frustration at being beat in search engine results for my own name by someone who has been dead for almost 400 years. I decided to channel that frustration into a tribute in the form of a digital experiment. What follows is… Read more »
I came home from two weeks in New England to my contributor’s copy of South Bank Poetry 15. I was very sorry to miss the launch reading due to this trip. However, I look forward to reading through poems from a list of names both familiar and new. My own addition to the issue is… Read more »
My three-part poem “Mice of the London Underground” is now available on the qarrtsiluni website as part of their Animals in the City issue. Part three of the poem draws inspiration from a prank notice about attacking mice at Farringdon tube station, which I commute through frequently. I love the theme of this issue and… Read more »

I am pleased to have the poem “Koi Pond” appear on Josephine Corcoran’s website today, in good company alongside many other fine poems. It is dedicated to the memory of the remarkable Ken Jones, whose presence and writing near the end of his own life touched me deeply. Enjoy the poem.
I came across Martian Lit online and was struck by its hard-hitting poetry and prose dealing with themes of strangeness and alienation in the modern world. I have long been interested in the possibilities of so-called Martian poetry–taking an outsider’s view of Earthling affairs to discover something essentially human. And so I am very happy… Read more »
I recently received my contributor’s copy of Poetry Salzburg Review No. 22, containing two of my poems. I have Miriam Halahmy to thank for turning me on to PSR several months ago at a Highgate Poets meeting. I liken it to a kind of European equivalent of Rattle–brimming with good poems of a sensibility sympatico… Read more »
