What Orbis wants [UK]:
Requirements: Besides poems -- and occasionally upbeat doesn’t come amiss -- Orbis welcomes prose, 500-1000 words, suggestions for cover artwork and features, eg the Past Master Section, or indeed, Past Mistress. 500-1000 words; ideas in first instance, not completed articles: subjects for discussion, technical, topical etc [...]

In particular, having been involved for some time with Social Inclusion projects and encouraging access to the Arts, eg South Asian Showcase for Liverpool’s Dead Good Poets Society, I am interested in work from all such communities, especially young people, under 20s and 20somethings.

Even with women writers -- although magazine subscriptions are around 50/50 -- submissions are still a good third less than those from men. All help with promotion gratefully received.

Orbis 121, May 2002 is on the Poetry Library website: www.poetrymagazines.org.uk and the Spring issue, 132, which has already completely sold out, will be online next month.
