is a new internet magazine, the first issue out now at Put together by poet and art critic Michael Glover the first issue features poems and commentary from an eclectic mix of contributors. Among the poets is the London-based Iraqi poet Fawzi Karim whose work will be appearing from Carcanet in due course, in versions made in collaboration with poet Antony Howell. He is one of a number of very fine Iraqi poets living in London and these versions are well worth checking out. And there are collages by John Ashbery, who discusses these with Michael Glover . . .

There’s a gathering to inaugurate the site, with readings from some contributors, on Tuesday March 3rd, at 7.30pm at The Foundry in Shoreditch, 84-86 Great Eastern Street, London EC2.
