I have two prose poems ('We Weren't Interested in Girls' and 'Lunch at the Coffee Shop') included in what could possibly be the last ever issue of Square.
"Featuring poetry from Nick Fisk, Shelagh Middlehurst, Nicholas Francis, Ceri Thomas, Matthew Duggan, Lance Nizami, Chris Jackson, Peter Finch, Flo Fflach, Phillip Burton, Ifor Thomas & Zoe Warren.
Short stories from Mark Howard Jones & Dave Lewis.
Microfiction from Rhys Owain Williams and Amy Mackleden.
+ Book reviews, Dave Duke reviews his own tour, Fisk reviews The Communist Manifesto (only 163 years late)
+ a Square Crossword!
PLUS! As well as ALL THAT, this final issue comes with a fantastic audio CD of poetry!"
The magazine is available now at a cost of only £5 (which includes postage and a back issue of your choice) from squaremag.net.
The tenth, and possibly last ever, issue of Cardiff-based poetry magazine Square will be launched on Sunday May 22nd at the Poet's Corner Pub, City Road, Cardiff.
I have two poems featured in this Revolution-themed issue, and will hopefully be reading at the launch, so please come along and support what will possibly be the final instalment of a magazine that have been very kind to me over the years, and who were the first to place my poetry in print back in 2008 (Square Issue 3).
The event starts at 6.30pm with readings from contributors past and present and live music from The Pine Barons. Entry is free.
