I’ve been contacted by Alex Davies, who co-edits the experimental poetry website Openned. The name’s a combination of ‘open’ and ‘penned’, apparently.
Anyway, Alex recently had the good sense to move oop north from London and is now expanding the site to include Manchester. Here’s what he has to say about it:
It’s called opeNned (see what we did there, so clever us poets eh) and it’s just getting off the ground, but it would be a big boost to us if you wouldn’t mind posting on Mancubist about it with a message along the lines of ‘contact the editors if you are interested in being involved in opeNned’.
Besides publishing a rather hefty PDF anthology, they also run poetry nights in London – and it sounds from the website like they may well start doing the same here.
In the meantime, if you fancy getting involved, read the guidelines here and then email submissions [at] openned [dot] com.
