Northwords Now


  • Northwords Now

    Northwords Now have a web-site, and my poems – also Sally Evans and the translations of Lorca by Christie Williamson – are up on it, though you’d better download the pdf, or you’ll go cross-eyed reading the font. Northwords Now is based in the Highlands and distributed free through libraries and bookshops.
    You can find it here

    The new edition finally got here, and I have copies for my mother and my mother-in-law. Sally Evans and I share a page, which makes me feel very honoured, and we feature on the front cover, which impresses me! It’s a very well-produced magazine, and has been one of my favourites for the last couple of years. At this moment,when it has just reached its tenth number, the editor, Rhoda Michael, has just stepped down, and I’d like to take this opportunity to pay tribute to her.
    A voice for the creative work going on in the Highlands was always going to be a desirable thing, but making it a free news-sheet available through libraries and bookshops was a stroke of genius. It makes good poetry and fiction an accessible community activity without the temptation to dumb down.
    Plus Rhoda was always lovely to work for. I am sure I will miss her, but her successor, Jon Miller, seems fine too, and I wish him every success.

    The new edition of Northwords Now is out, and though I haven’t seen a copy yet, I am assured that four of my poems are in it – Naming the Autumn, The Voice of the Carnyx, Hekla’s Country, and April.
