It's like TOTALLYPOPTASTIC


Just got issue numero uno of 'popshot' poetry + illustration magazine-'the wonder of the ordinary' And I have to say I think it's great and different and stylish and new.The pages are black and the ink is white and each poem gets a full page illustration all of which are totally superb and worth buying the magazine (£6 inc p+p) for on their own..and there's a two page centrefold illustration too.Some of the poems are better than others but our own Nuala Ni Chonchuir is in there (and everywhere at the moment) and that's always a good thing.It's a great little magazine where perhaps the poetry accompanies the pictures and not the other way round.They'll be looking for (poetry) submissions from 1st May but no details of how the illustrators get in.It's a mag I'd like to be in so I'll give it a lash and if you are an illustrator I would definitely recommend getting in touch, it's a real showcase for your work. Buy it if you can comrades and wish it every success.

That's a good looking wee mag, I had to google it as the address you gave didn't work, but I found it. Where are they based?

Heather said...

I'm neither a poet or an illustrator but I can see that this is a great magazine - definitely something out of the ordinary and a bit special. Good luck with your submission(s).

As always, TFE, you are a wealth of knowledge and on the cutting edge of poetics and visual stimuli. Here in the Word Verification world, we call your genre of artistic rendering 'dureti.'

Rock that 'dureti-enne' foray! :-)

It's a deadly looking mag - I'm thrilled to be in it and I love the pic they put with my poem.
The illustrations are brilliant. Some of the poems are a bit...not-up-to-scratchy though, I think. Still, it's only issue 1 so they'll get there.

(A.K.A as the greatest poem ever written) and there was/is a pop group from Manchester(england)called 'The Durutti Column' -close enough fer me :) Jagsmso!!!!
