Hurrah! Brittle Star issue 17 is out now, as it jumped through the letterbox this morning. And as is usual for this little yet varied magazine, it contains a variety of poetry, prose, essays and reviews from various writers, my highlights after a quick flick through being Michelle O'Sullivan's poem 'Interlude', Daniel Andersson's wry and affecting quatrain 'Forecast', and an unflinchingly personal piece by Phil Poole on his friendship with the poet Phil Malleson, who died earlier this year.
There's loads more in the mag, too, including a little something by myself, so why not buy a copy? You can subscribe on the website (only £6 for two issues, or £11 for four), and get a feel for the sort of work published with the sample poems available in the archive. Even better, there's a few older issues loaded up on the Poetry Magazines' site: http://www.poetrymagazines.org.uk. Happy reading.
