And another mag

While I’m on the subject of favourite magazines, I have to include the online journal Angle. It leans towards slightly more formal poetry, in that they are keen on meter and rhythm, but all kinds of treasure can be found in its depths. And they are very deep depths, too – I’m not sure how they cope with it, but each issue is around 100 pages, and the previous and next issues contain a sizeable ekphrastic supplement, too. Angle is published in the UK by Philip Quinlan, and is edited by him and Ann Drysdale in the US, and I’d say the majority of poets are from the US. A number of the names are familiar from Antiphon, and I keep an eye out for Marybeth Rua-Larsen, Maryann Corbett, Jo Bell and Annette Volfing, just to mention a few. The subject-matter ranges all over the place, too, so it’s full of surprises. I was delighted to have a couple of poems in issue 6, and will have a couple more in issue 7, out very soon. It’s great company to be in.
