Work on Horizon and more...

I received word the other day that Horizon Review 3 has gone live this week. Yet another feast of poetry, short stories, reviews, criticism and so much more. I'm really lucky to have 3 poems on there, as well as a separate collaborative piece I wrote with poet Tony Williams during the summer. That's towards the bottom of the side-links. It's quite different to what I normally do, but I really enjoyed doing it with Tony (hmm, perhaps I should rephrase that... ;) ).

If you haven't done already, you should take a look at this fast-growing e-journal. Edited by Jane Holland, it also has Nuala Ni Chonchuir as fiction editor and George Ttouli as reviews editor. HR just grows on you!

In other news, I have work in the latest edition of Mimesis, which just arrived on Monday. There's me in the same journal as Paul Muldoon... and Rob MacKenzie, not to mention a lot of other names I recognise. Imagine!

And I've a brace of work forthcoming in the new edition of The Yellow Nib, the journal of the Seamus Heaney Centre for Writing at Queen's University Belfast. They're sonnets about Mallory. I won't say any more until it comes out, but I am very excited by it :)

I've enjoyed reading through a lot of this after you introduced me to it (obviously, yours and Rob's poems are bestest...). I left a comment on Rob's blog this morning about the Hugo Williams interview, which is a good read - he comes across as a really amusing guy, as well as slightly potty - but then he is a poet ;o)

Well done Barbara. Really looking forward to seeing the Mallory pieces in Yellow Nib.

Well done Barbara, great work. So teaching and writing must actually mix well. Nothing like being busy to concentrate the mind and the work.

Liz said...

Congrats, Barbara - enjoyed your Horizon poems and yes! that collaborative poem was mighty!

Fair play on all your imminent publications...great stuff.

Michelle said...

Fabulous news about all your publications, Barbara!

Busy seems a bit of an understatement on your side. I enjoyed your pieces in Horizon Review, especially The Wish Doll, which brought back memories of traipsing down Steep Street in Lincoln to buy quilt quarters to make into doll clothes for a black haired cotton doll. I think children probably always remember those of their toys they saw made in front of them. Horizon Review online is new to me. Ben Wilkinson's blog put me onto it just this morning. A great find, and a great read. Also a smashing photo of you.

Wow look at how far you've come Barbara! And still going too - you are going from strength to strength. Fantastic!

Kay's right, well done indeed. Congratulations on all these projects and pieces coming together.

Mairi, thanks for your lovely comments. I think you're so right about home-made children's toys - far more appreciated than a lump of plastic derived from synthetic products. Thanks about the picture, I like the warmth there is in the photo - although my hair is a bit wild!

Kay, as always I appreciate your warm and wise comments, as I do Apprentice's.

Michelle, in the same issue as you - can't figure out how they let in an old reprobate like me ;)

Liz, thanks as always.

Michael, busy is as busy does. I guess it answers my own question. :)

Jaki, thank you pet!

Messalina, as you know, I value your insight, so, many thanks.

You are on a roll! Long may it continue (because it is deserved, of course :) )
