Queer British Poetry: The Controversy Starts Here

Apparently my article for Horizon Review, subtitled "Hanging Out Under Orlando's Oak Tree," has been getting some attention on the Poets on Fire list. I'm excited that people are reading the magazine, which has recently -- and magnificently -- risen phoenix-like under Jane Holland's editorship. It's a juicy issue, and I was glad of the opportunity to cover a juicy topic, and gladder still that the topic -- where are the out and proud queer British poets and poetry? -- has taken on a life of its own, as the article is a plea for a reconfigured public space for lively debate and provocative poetry. Also, for more sexy bodies finding their way into striking, new-fangled language!
