Last weekend I attended the launch of Poetry Nottingham at the aforementioned splendid Mechanics' Institute. Readings by contributors and a talk on the poetry of Michael Donaghy by Ian Collinson. I'm on the editorial board, but I don't have to do very much, certainly no editing. The magazine is all Adrian Buckner's, and a nice job he's doing, even if the poetry he chooses isn't what I'd choose - there's an integrity and coherence to the magazine, and in the latest issue a considered defence of 'mainstream' poetic values.
