From an Australian Editor

This is just a little late but we would like to pass on this email from an Australian magazine and may be of interest to any of our writers:

Catherine Lee May 1, 2015 at 1:13 pm

My name is Catherine and I am the host editor of the International Poets page for the monthly Australian magazine, FreeXpresSion.

This is a magazine which upholds family values and is widely read by all ages from young teenagers upwards. I introduce one overseas poet per month on my page, and having found your group online would like to invite any of your members who may be interested to send me a selection of poems for consideration.

There is no catch – copyright remains with authors and there is nothing to pay. Poets receive a complimentary copy of the issue in which their work is published. All I would need is a few poems from which to choose and a short Bio so I can introduce the poet to our readers. If you or any of your members are interested in writing to me in this regard I would be delighted to hear from you by email on: Thank you, Catherine Lee


Writing Poetry MA

If your thoughts are turning to Autumn and the call-to-the-classroom that September always sings, don’t forget that our new Masters in Writing Poetry is open for applications.

The two year course starts at the end of September 2015, and you can study in one of two centres: the Poetry School’s Lambeth Walk classrooms in London, or at Newcastle University itself.  Both groups of students will come together for an annual joint Summer School, alternating between London and Newcastle.

In London, teaching takes place during the day on Tuesdays and will be tutored by Roddy Lumsden and Clare Pollard.

You will also receive tuition from guest tutors from the Poetry School and Newcastle University teaching communities.

Full details of the programme and the application process are available on the Newcastle University website.
