A little update on the mag front: I've poems in recent issues of Poetry London (No.61), The London Magazine (Aug/Sept 08) and the revamped Magma (no.42), which also has an impressive new website and blog.
In Poetry London, there're also excellent poems from Helen Mort and Jack Underwood, alongside Daljit Nagra, Andrew Motion and my fellow Hallam MA student, Susan Burns. Well worth a look. The London Magazine includes a wide selection of poems and reviews, including new work by Matthew Sweeney and an interesting review from Christopher Horton of new collections from Salt poets Chris McCabe and Simon Barraclough. And there's so much in the latest Magma it's hard to know where to start - highlights include a feature on the Gregory Award winners with a new poem from each, poems by Claire Crowther, Mark Waldron, Beverley Nadin and Vicki Feaver, and Blake Morrison's thoughts on Larkin's 'Poetry of Departures'.
Next Friday also sees the launch of mine and Emily Berry's debut tall-lighthouse collections: The Sparks and Stingray Fevers. I'll post an invitation up for it later this week, but for those interested, the Facebook group's here.
