My copy of the new poetry magazine Strixalso arrived this week. Like the first issue, Strix #2 is again packed with high quality poetry and prose, and I am delighted to have one of my poems included (“What Colour is the Wind?”). Last month Carol Rumens described the magazine, edited by Ian Harker and Andrew Lambeth as “Handsome, streamlined and sharp-eyed…” in The Guardian. It’s certainly one to watch over the coming months.


In addition to all this, there is the usual brilliant array of poetry and spoken word nights around the city so head out for some words!
