My poem ‘From The Morning’, about life after rape and some of the songs, poems, novels and landscapes that make it a mostly good one, appears in APJ 9.2 ‘DIS—’, guest-edited by Jennifer Harrison and Andy Jackson.
‘Dis–,’ writes Jackson in his foreword, ‘is the prefix that is pre-fix, before a broken situation or body is repaired. These poems capture and convey the tension and potency of such unresolved states.’
This issue also includes poetry by J V Birch, David Brooks, Quinn Eades, Gavin Yuan Gao, Anna Jacobson, Heather Taylor Johnson, Elif Sezen, Emily Sun, Saba Vasefi, Samuel Wagan Watson and Rae White.
