Read a couple of Alan Moore ‘Saga of Swamp Thing’ this summer, and invested in the rest of the six volumes recently. Much to admire in terms of story, phrasing, ecopoetics and there are some classic storylines eg nuclear annihilation, slavery etc. Was not expecting to be so utterly beguiled by ‘Pog’, the tale of a mini alien race looking for a new planet to start again. Poignant, and the alien language brilliantly and innovatively rendered. Kudos, sir!
Do come along!

Sad to catch up on this article I missed from December 2017
Am I naive to think that my poem ‘The Afterlife’ had become something obsolete? Share in the hopes the purveyors of such weaponry please desist….?
Check out this primer from Scientific American which explains the psychology I explore in my poem ‘Bystanders’ (see poems tab)
Climate Change Issue
delighted to have a poem forthcoming in this issue, out in November.
it’s entitled ‘an eco-worrier tweets’, although i don’t suspect the tweet will replace haiku any time soon.
might start a twitter account and post a tweet from it every day (there are 5) once it’s released
