Today I launched an online poetry journal entitled The Passionate Transitory. I'm inviting original, quality contributions from new and existing poets. Its scope will be broad, but with a particular emphasis on "life, landscape, travel and pilgrimage" — that's "pilgrimage of the mind, the body and the soul". Here's a copy of the home page:
The Passionate Transitory
New online poems about life, landscape, travel and pilgrimage
Submissions are invited for Issue 1 of an exciting, new, online poetry magazine: The Passionate Transitory. Poems should be original and well-crafted, and have something resonant to say. Whether the poem is rhymed or unrhymed, direct or oblique, it's the quality of the writing that counts, and that mysterious, visceral frisson you get from reading it.
This is what love does to things: the Rialto Bridge, / The main gate that was bent by a heavy lorry, / The seat at the back of a shed that was a sun trap. / Naming these things is the love-act and its pledge; / For we must record love’s mystery without claptrap, / Snatch out of time the passionate transitory.
I'm excited by this new venture, and hope that some of you will consider contributing!
