Foxglove Journal: Poetry and Fiction

Here’s another ezine that’s new to me and currently open for submissions. It was set up by poet Elizabeth Gibson last October; Foxglove Journal features work from UK and international writers, some of whom I recognise from my old editing days with The New Writer.

Foxglove Journal showcase work “that thrills, comforts and stimulates”. Each poem is accompanied by one of Elizabeth’s fantastic photographs. Elizabeth is also Fiction Editor at Miracle Magazine and writes for The Mancunion, Cuckoo Review, The Cadaverine and Third Year Abroad.

I recently published Elizabeth’s stunning poem Sheepgoat which deserves another reading if you have time 😉  … so click on the title to have a read.

I’ve snatched one of the poems from the site for you to read now. It’s by Nancy Iannucci, an historian who teaches history and lives poetry in Troy, NY.

 

The Day After

A tremor & a shift,
Kerouac’s Desolation Pops dropped
to my feet by the jolt.

Black tea dyed crescents on the envelope,
tsunamis rushed ashore. My heart
raced & read, reread & raced through

your words with a flux capacitor.
Your letter came today, but
we gathered yesterday

by the flowers during
your calling hours. I thought
you never responded.
