Oh come, all ye faithful: readers, subscribers, contributors –

something to warm your heart in this bitter Winter.
Let us whisk you away to somewhere exotic, and join 
Jackie Wills
when Cruella de Ville 
visits Brighton, or Charles Wilkinson, looking at
The House in the ForestNo? 
Well, how about Alexandra Corrin-Tachibana…
At the Fishmonger’s with my son
Then you could be transported by Tim Houghton – |
and T-Rex, unless you’ve reached 
Watershed; that’s you
and Nathanael O’Reilly both. But if you’re wondering 
what Martin Worster
means by 
The Let-Down, or Carolyn Oulton, asking 
What am I supposed to call this?
Catherine O’Brien may have the answer in A Lexicon Of You,
unless Rob McCarthy will translate From The Greek,
or George Moore,  using the Rosetta Stone
All the same, it’s no mystery
because reading Orbis
can help bring joy to the world.

    Hi,

    I would like a copy of issue 201 and also to subscribe for £20. How do I do that? I’m not on facebook. My friend and mentor John Priestly features in issue 201 and he recommended a subscription! I love reading and writing (and occasionally performing poetry) and would love to get published one day..

    Look forward to your reply.

    All best, Hannah.
