The Spring issue is now live . 

The poems cover varied subject matter. The technique and imagery throughout is enviable. Teresa Blackmon deals with that human peculiarity that wonders what if we jumped under a train, over a cliff...It is a brave and indeed profound poem. Giles Goodland 's imagery is striking as he effectively reenacts for the reader a walk. Josh Ekroy uses the same level of technique to describe an urban landscape . George Payne's poem surprises and delights with it's language and final line . The subject mattter of James Bell's poem is unique and so touching . It is handled with great sensitively. Peter Branson's poem 'The Shell Gatherer' is a tender evocation of childhood with exquisitve detailing. Judith Corleto's poem conjours up the golden age of Hollywood, used as a metaphor for the narrator's fight to be heard. Whilst Joan Dobbie charms with the everyday intimacy of a relationship . 

These are very fine poems indeed...
