And Other Poems

Over at And Other Poems, there are now two index pages listing every poem published on the site since 2012 (and of course, you can click through to the poems themselves, too). I'm not even going to try to list the many excellent poets who have appeared there, because to pick any out would be unfair, but have a look yourself and enjoy.

Thanks to Laura McKee, who flagged this up on Facebook, and whose own excellent poems you can see here. Short poems too often get overlooked – it takes an awful lot of skill and nerve to know just how much is enough.

You can read two of my poems from The Elephant TestsThe Mind's Skyline and The Dark Ages – which were published there.

Poetry Pleases! said...

Dear Matt

Many of Matthew Stewart's poems are short and so are mine. There are few things more tedious than a long-winded poem. It's like an over-long play when you are dying to get to the bar.
