Finished before the current lockdown, Some Roast Poet #3 already feels like a message from the world we’ve lost, and when Nell Osborne read her poems from this issue at a recent Peter Barlow’s Cigarette, the simplicity of just going to see some poets read on a Saturday afternoon, with a glass of wine, seems a more precious thing now than it did then.
You can read Nell’s poems alongside other poems by Tim Allen, Stuart Calton (who also designed the fetching cover), Joe Darlington, Thomas England, Robert Galeta, Alan Halsey, Steve Hanson, Karen Hendrick, Nell Osborne, Robert Sheppard, Adrian Slatcher, Scott Thurston and Rhys Trimble.
Some Roast Poet continues to take the temperature of Manchester’s contemporary poetry community and its associates, and we’ll be working on a 4th edition to give us something to celebrate when we come out of lockdown.
You can buy Issue #3 for £3 (plus £2 p&p) UK Only here.
