OWP 91 EDITORIAL & CONTENTS LIST FOR THE AUGUST ISSUE OF OBSESSED WITH PIPEWORK
So excited to be ushering into the hands of readers this exhilarating collation of poets’ visions.
We are living in unprecedented & revolutionary times when many people have found time on their hands and a chance to take a fresh look at the worlds we have been living in and that live in us.
Please take these poems slowly & let their layers develop. The editing task means my focus is often on the minutiae of format or punctuation, and a joy of rereading the finished magazine is to start to realize all the other jewels lurking in and among the often adventurous works we have chosen for you.
