In an effort to try and regain something resembling control of my life, I’ve decided to get rid of some of the literary magazines that I’ve subscribed to in the past. So this is your chance to snaffle a selection of literary periodicals, of varying age and origin. There are a lot of them, so I’m going to be giving some away every week or two for the next little while.
Up for grabs today are the following UK mags:
- Orbis 116/7 (Spring/Summer 2000)
- Poetry Wales 38:1 (Summer 2002)
- Poetry London 52 (Autumn 2005)
- The Rialto 56 (November 2004)
and one from Australia:
- Island 84 (Spring/Summer 2000 – 2001).
For this first giveaway, we’ll have a small competition. Write a limerick OR cinquain OR other five line poem that in some way uses the phrase “comfortable trousers”. (Believe it or not, I picked it at random from a poem in one of the mags.) At this stage I’m restricting things to within NZ only – postage for this little stash would otherwise be unpleasantly high.
Post your entry in the comments section, and a winner will be selected on the morning of Friday April 8th.
