The Kidnapper’s Store

Otoliths 38

It may be winter down south, but I’ll put money on the weather being better there than it is here. OTOLITHS, the ‘magazine of many e-things’, is out and contains eight of my visual reactions to the ongoing and seemingly endless stramash caused by poetry plagiarists. These are part of a larger work titled The Kidnapper’s Store. You can find them here.

It’s another vibrant and varied issue. Go see.


The Rialto


The great magazine has reached issue number 83. It contains work by more than 60 poets, including Hannah Lowe, Emily Hasler, Jodie Hollander, Sharon Black, Daljit Nagra, and my own poem ‘Hitching Through Normandy’.

Michael Mackmin and his team at the magazine have been working on a new funding application in recent months, and always appreciate a subscription or magazine purchase. Now you have the perfect excuse. The Rialto has been running for 31 years and publishes three times a year. That’s an astonishing number of poems put out there for us to read, and intoxicating support for an enormous number of poets. Go here to support The Rialto.
