Hello rogues and rapscallions, readers and writers. We hope you’re enjoying your summer (or winter if you’re in the southern hemisphere). Issue #9 brings poems with odd animal and offbeat fairytale influences, poems that feel like summer, poems to remind you of America, poems to remind you of the rest of the world, poems befitting Pride season, and anything else you’re not expecting (or maybe you are by now).
In further summery poetry news: Picaroon are teaming up with our friends at Prole magazine for a poetry day in Llandudno, North Wales on 12th August 2017. There will be an afternoon meet up, and an evening open mic on the pier – see our facebook event page for details. If you’re in the UK and can get to our takeover of the actual seaside (poetry pirates walking the walk, not just talking the talk), we’d love to see you!
Issue #9 features work by Louisa Campbell, Matt Nicholson, Carol Eades, Paul Vaughan, Karen Little, Tobi Alfier, Robert Okaji, Wayne Russell, Kenneth Pobo, James H Duncan, Cheryl Pearson, Marija Smits, Rosie Garland, Leslie Thomas, Katerina Neocleous, Louise Warren, Mark Totterdell, Susan Taylor, Ali Jones, Amber Decker, Daniel Edward Moore, JC Reilly, Angi Holden, Jacob Butlett, Howie Good, Jonathan Butcher, Jean Atkin, Bridget Clawson, Gareth Culshaw, and Darren C. Demaree.
