is a new internet magazine, the first issue out now at http://www.bowwowshop.org.uk/. 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.
