Swansong for 14 Magazine

It was the best of times, it was the worst of times. After eight wonderful years, poets and fans of Britain’s only literary magazine devoted to fourteen line poems, gathered last night at the Poetry Cafe in Covent Garden to celebrate its last ever edition.  And oh, the irony – issue 14!

P.66  ‘Detritus’ by Claire Booker

It was standing room only for late-comers. And what a feast of sonnets, including  work by Alan Brownjohn, AF Harrold, Joel Allegretti and Catherine Smith.

My own contribution to the magazine, a 14 liner entitled ‘Detritus’, picks up on an extraordinary remark made by Anton Chekhov that he could find ideas for stories anywhere, even in a used ashtray.
