I’m a bit late posting news of this new journal, seeing as it was launched a couple of weeks ago (I seem to have a big backlog of Things to Blog About at the moment). It’s a journal in which I’m thrilled to be included, not only because the islands theme is a bit of an obsession of mine, but also because I admire so many of the other island-dwelling poets whose work is featured, not to mention the inspired editor, Nesrin Eruysal.

Here’s the full blurb:

The Autumn (and first) issue of the Turkish Söyleşi Üç Aylık Şiir Dergisi is now available to download in pdf format or read online as a virtual magazine:


This issue centres on the theme of Islands, its contributors hailing from the water-locked places of the world, translated into both Turkish and English.
