Issue 4 of the wonderful New Walk is available. I’m very pleased to have two poems included. New Walk have been going for a couple of years and were one of the first publications to take my work which appeared in Issue 1. The editors Rory Waterman ( a fine poet with a collection due from Carcanet )and Nick Everett have been unstinting supportive and generous to me, and seem to be able to attract submissions from some of the best know writers in the county as well as publishing newer writers like myself.
This edition includes work by Carol Rumens, Samantha Wynne-Rhydderch (placed second in this years National Poetry Comp. and with a keenly anticipated collection on the Scott expedition out in summer from Picador), Evan Jones, Sarah Jackson (the Nottingham based poet who’s first collection will soon be out with Bloodaxe ), Clive Watkins, C.P. Cavafy (trans. Ian Parks) and many others.
There are essays by poet and reviewer David Cooke on Derek Mahon, Gerry Cambridge on Robert Frost, Peter Redgrove remembered and lots more including the usual beautifully produced artwork which we have come to expect in this excellent publication.
Why not take out a subscription today and help support the survival of this important new magazine on the British poetry scene.
