Five poems in Tentacular magazine

A batch of poems from my new collection, ‘Return by Minor Road’, which will be published by Bloodaxe in April, have gone up at innovative online journal Tentacular magazine.

An ‘online poetry, responses and arts magazine’ issued three times a year, Tentacular describes itself as ‘playful, exploratory, and warmly welcoming.’

Its aim is ‘To create connections, a tissue of interactions, by curating deliberate journeys and juxtapositions through the magazine and beyond.  It does this in particular with hyperlink ‘tentacles’ at the foot of each piece, on each side of the Home button.  Some of these links are suggested by contributors themselves.  Some are editorial choices to provoke reflection.’

Tentacular is ‘a magazine as a kind of reading & writing animal.  Which evolves, reaches out, asks you to involve yourself in its creation.’

The result is a rich and varied read, curated by each reader as they navigate through the journal exploring connections.
