The Compass

If you haven’t seen the wonderful new on-line magazine The Compass yet, I do hope you can find time to check it out. There’s work by brilliant poets such as Liz Berry, Helen Mort and Julia Copus as well as poems by newer poets such as Siegfried Baber, who was a featured poet on this blog a while ago, and a whole range of intriguing and engrossing pieces by poets I haven’t heard of before. There’s also a selection of reviews, two by friends of mine, Maria Taylor and John Foggin, and one from me of  Jane Clarke’s ‘The River’ (Bloodaxe), ‘Loop of Jade’ (Chatto and Windus) by Sarah Howe, and ‘The Art of Scratching’ (Bloodaxe) by Shazea Quaraishi.  It’s great to be involved with such a finely produced and carefully edited magazine.
If  you’d like to read a longer version of my review of Jane Clarke’s wonderful collection ‘The River’ I’ve posted it on the ‘Poetry Reviews’ page of this site.
