Orbis 187, Spring 2019

Fancy a closer look?

Introductory offer: 2 back issues for just £7, down from £5 each,
and that includes p+p: £1.60 (saving £3) –
because reading magazines helps judge the best match with your work
in order to maximize publication opportunities.

Information is posted virtually every day,
regardless of what the date counter says, unless –

I’m busy thinking, nice song,
shame about…

First, Ted Hughes, then Sylvia Plath (although some of you may want to argue
about that), in an article by 
Paul Stephenson.  
But Spring is here, somewhere,
although still chilly enough to snuggle up with 
Neil Beardmore,
In Bed, Writing Poetry About Hokusaias long as you don’t end up having nightmares
about 
Annie Newcomer’s Ukraine. Much better to have A Dream To Dare,
like 
Morgan Kenney, or to imagine being The God of Little Things (Faye Boland).
And does Louise WilfordWhen He Marched Back, have anything to do with
Rodney Wood’s ABC of the Royal Navy? Or, Tim Cunningham’s description of
Nostalgia Day In Paradise – even Alisa VelajAniara, Aniara
Or My Transcendence of Night? Back down to earth, sort of, let Claire Booker
tell you all about being 
Eyeless in Riyadh. Last, but by no means least, pay a visit to
Tim Dowley’s Life class. And if you fancy being transported to a classy life,
you know where to look. Right here:
