Three of my poems ('Bookshop Evacuation at the Edinburgh Festival', 'Let's Talk About the Weather' and 'A Toast to Hospitality') are featured in this month's new issue of Square.
Square editor Nick Fisk:
"I actually commissioned the cover for this issue, to tie in with Sue Hamblen's excellent poem about the subject that was on everyone's lips recently – the woman banned from Tesco for shopping in her pyjamas. Apparently, it is blanket policy now across all Tesco stores that the wearing of pyjamas is prohibited, in spite of the fact that Martin Clunes once appeared in a Tesco ad wearing his. Anyway, I think you'll agree that Jackie Jones has done a great job with the cover illustration.
