And across the seas to Ireland we go for plenty of variety from Fish, Limnisaand Ó Bhéal –
further afield yet, when it’s translations for John Dryden.

With big prizes when writing for little people (not leprechauns, children):Manchester

Back home, Second Light offer an anthology of women’s writing
Her Wings of Glass, and Oxford have an MSt in Creative Writing

Here comes some poetry in the fast lane: Slipstream, or Frogmore, Southport, Ver and Ware, which you could match, with York/YorkMix, David Burland and Poetry Space

Expanding into short stories, we’ve got
Henshaw, Chapter One, Mslexia and Verulam
Or bridging the gap: Bridport and Biography from Earlyworks

And curiously enough, there’s also: The Christopher Salmon Extravaganza; Five ‘n Ten; Papatango; Prole; Sampad; Synesthaesia; Big Moose
and CrazyHorse
