Default The Penn Review

In the off chance that you're interested in:
  • surrealist party etiquette advice (donít forget your 20 petticoats)
  • tiny regency dancers... trapped in paper lanterns (of course)
  • and a 1970's ski resort postcard

then I have the very thing:

(I'm really pleased to be in Penn. They were one of my aspire-to journals when I first started to send work out)

The link doesn't seem to load. But I am confident the work is lovely.

Cheers,
John

Very captivating! Great venue that's turned me down way more often than I'll confess. You're on a roll, gathering creds.

Ralph, David and Cam, thank you!

Ralph, thatís good to know that you like the venue.

Because Iím not very directly linked to poetry networks (no MFA etc) I have to use a kind of Ďrule of thumbí to work out which ones I send work to - basically this looks like whether I like/personally rate the work on site, plus acceptance stats, plus editorial team (& I have a friend who swears by the Garstang list so I use that too). And yes, Iím trying to build a bio. Itís hard work!

There are fewer visual poets out there than there are text poets. It means Iím at an advantage when it comes to publications, particularly as some parts of the poetry world shift online, which is an animation/image hungry space. Partly that shift (paradoxically) makes me sad, as I donít read as much metrical poetry out there as Iíd personally hope to read.

David and Cam - Thanks both, I was rejected (for text-only) before I was accepted for the visuals! I am rejected as much as Iím accepted : ) But I learn things with every rejection, and, curiously, I think the rejections - and having to plough through them - helps the work in an odd way.

Sarah-Jane

Hi Sarah,

Great work! I love the picture and the poem, especially the last line.

Youíre really strong in this medium. It is weirdly touching.

I'm glad to see you've yet again unleashed your inner menagerie of visions; it stops me, attracts me to read between and through and into the void of possibilities. It's inspired, as your work always is and always will be.

The things I hang on snowy trees are bundled in boxes for most of the year...

When do the jigs take place? When the wind pickup? Hahaha.

Is this a photo you took? Alps?
