I’m delighted that my prose poem, ‘Along the Corpse Road’, is included in Magma 47. The issue is guest edited by Annie Freud with the assistance of Roberta James and the theme is ‘the devil and all his works’.
The launch reading will be held on Monday, 21 June, at the Troubadour, 265 Old Brompton Road, London SW5, at 8 pm. Magma showcase poet, Dorothea Smartt, will be reading alongside Jo Shapcott, Matthew Sweeney and a number of poets who appear in the issue. It’s sure to be a memorable evening.
