Popshot Magazine

I got a couple of copies of this poetry magazine. It really is beautifully put together. Each copy has a theme. Each poem has a brief explanation of the inspiration from the poet and is illustrated. That said, not all the poems are (whisper) very good. Some are though. So why not help up the ante and support an imaginative project by

- buying a copy
- submitting

The theme is 'This Is Modern Living'.

They say

We look for poems with originality, not carbon copies of poetry classics.
Poems with a linguistic focus on rhythm, repetition and pattern are preferred but this definitely doesn't mean obscure free verse is overlooked.
Poems must be no longer than 25 lines and must be written to the theme.
Please also include a paragraph or two about yourself and a short explanation of the poem - why you came to write it and what it means to you.
Submit poems by email to

Deadline: 31st July 2010 at the very latest.
