because reading magazines helps judge the best match with your work
in order to maximize publication opportunities.

down from £10 each, saving £4
NB, ‘back issues’ does what it says on the can, ie here;
it doesn’t mean current and previous issue because they’re
still on sale, although most issues sell out pretty swiftly:
#170 – #173, and #175- #178.
Information is posted virtually every day,
regardless of what the date counter says, unless –
I’ve been thinking: how good fish and chips
or a Chinese takeaway taste after all that turkey…

The Long and the Short and the Tall? Well, long poems this time, certainly,
and a lot that rhyme (which perhaps this should do in honour of the occasion),
except – Helen Harrison’s The Rhythm of Wood. Plus a couple under 10 lines,
and maybe you’ll agree with Gregory Arena, that We’re all Dr Who?
Yes, quite a few Tales of the Unexpected: ever come across
The Patagonian Su? Let Colin Sutherill explain. Or you could visit Mt. Hiei
in the company of Pauline Flynn, perhaps pay a Cold Call, with Martin Malone.
Meanwhile, Lay by Gale Acuff is entirely open to interpretation,
and better pay heed to Marie Dolores’s suggestion: Beware the Meek.
What exactly does Cathy Whittaker have in mind, saying, I will buy a trunk?
No prizes however for guessing whom Grahame Lloyd’s
Trumpery Trumpety Trump is about. And forgive us
if we seem to be blowing our own trumpet, Because reading the magazine –
you’ll soon see why…
