The Tangerine Issue 7

Section 69 from my forthcoming book this is no longer entertainment: A Documentary Poem (due out with Dostoyevsky Wannabe in March 2019) is excerpted in issue 7 of The Tangerine.

A thrice-yearly journal of new writing based in Belfast, The Tangerine includes features, reportage, commentary, fiction, poetry, illustration and photography. It is concerned with "things being various" (as per Louis MacNeice) and "seeks to provide a space for a plurality of voices: for new creative work, thoughtful discussion, and critical engagement with culture and politics in Belfast and beyond."

My contribution to the issue is the last section from the book to be excerpted prior to publication; the text makes reference to Marcel Duchamp's works and ideas, and includes tangential and occasionally unrelated discussion fragments.

My thanks to poetry editor Caitlin Newby and the extended editorial team at The Tangerine for giving space to my work. Other contributors to issue 7 (available at £9 + delivery) include Stephen Connolly, Suzanne Walsh, Darragh McCausland, Roisín O'Donnell, Megan Nolan and Ian Sansom.
