Great Works 12 Now Published

I'd like to announce that the just uploaded issue of Great Works contains the following new material:

All the material on contemporary British poetry is transferred to, which now has a proper homepage, and will be expanded. It includes a listing of readings in London. This means I don't have to remind you about the imminent launch of Sundays at the Oto, because you'll see it mentioned there. Do send details of any readings to me - at the moment I'm gleaning them as I can (which is why I'm only dealing with London).

The next stage (once I've just corrected an irritating little error on the homepage) is to redo the links. I also have to arrange for the publication of a posthumous volume of Amos Weisz's translations and other writing.

Beyond that, I aim at getting onto a more professional basis - negotiating the nightmares of funding! (if any's been spared from subsidising the bloody Olympics).

Further Update

Latest episode of Richard Makin's St Leonards now online. This should be the last tinkering before the new issue, later this month. (Assuming that trip to read in West Somerset (Porlock Arts Festival - deer-carving? poem-interrupting?) & inauguration of Sundays at the Oto don't run out of control, and I retain my retirement mental balance.
