gorse interview on 3:AM Magazine

Susan Tomaselli & I were recently interviewed by  3:AM Magazine' s Tristan Foster for a feature on  gorse . In response to his perceptive questions we discuss the journal's history, scope, outlook and goals, and offer thoughts on editing a print journal with an interest in experimental writing as well as related topics such as the potential of literature, the avant-garde, and "transgressing boundaries". We also announce plans for an associated imprint set to begin operations in 2017. A publishing statement will follow, but we were very happy to reveal that the first two titles will be an anthology of essays edited by Joanna Walsh , and Subcritical Tests , a book of collaborative poetry by Ailbhe Darcy & SJ Fowler . An excerpt from Subcritical Tests appeared in gorse No. 3. Below is Ailbhe Darcy & SJ Fowler at the Cork leg of Yes But Are We Enemies : The feature was published on Bloomsday 2016. Many thanks to Tristan Foster and to 3:AM Magaz
