Announcing the publication of Issue 8 of Braquemard
This is the millennial edition and is the best yet, with featured poet Douglas Houston, whose collection The Welsh Book of the Dead is published by Seren. From America there are poems by Duane Locke, Michele Scalise and Ben Wilensky. There are contributions from D.F.Lewis, Margot K.Juby, Mike Hoy and Geoff Stevens and many others, all excellent. The writing is accompanied by black and white illustrations.
Braquemard has been going for some years now and has grown from strength to strength but this is only possible through the support of our readers and the quality of writing received.
Would-be contributors should send their best work, regardless of previous magazine publication. Striking black-and-white artwork is also needed - good photocopies only, please. E-mail submissions are fine; snail-mail correspondents should remember to enclose an s.a.e.
Please note a change of address:
Please make cheques payable to David Allenby
|Do you write poetry for children?|
I am currently putting together a collection of work by writers in Hull and East Riding and want to hear from anyone interested in being published in an anthology of poems written specifically for children. Over the last two or three years I've become aware of many writers in the region who have secretly stacked away some children's poems of real quality and of equal strength to their so-called more 'serious' poems.
I would love the opportunity to gather all this unprinted material in one brilliant book.
There are no limits regarding subject matter, style, or length of poem, though I will be looking for as wide a variety as possible, and the poems should be aimed at the 4 - 11 year old range. I would welcome the material as soon as possible.
Anyone wishing to contribute please send your poems (preferably no more than 6) to:
