Issue 11 Editorial Note

For Issue 11 we're delighted to include, alongside our usual international array of poets, some of those reading at the Midsummer Poetry Festival being held at Bank Street Arts, Sheffield, UK. We're particularly pleased to have new work from Conor O'Callaghan, Helen Mort, Katharine Towers, Roy Marshall, Sally Goldsmith, Julie Mellor and Matt Clegg and to republish very recent works from Allison McVety and Harriet Tarlo. Many of these poets are already very well known, and we have reviewed their work in the past - but if you're not familiar with them, I would recommend you seek out their books. We're also pleased to publish new work from Robert Wrigley, and to present a short feature on Carolyn Martin, a poet new to us but whose poems we enjoyed. As always, we have a diverse and interesting range of poetry - thank you for all your submissions.
