Poetry magazine

Monday 5 June 2000

The latest edition of a magazine combining the talents of well-known poets and writers from the University of St Andrews has gone on sale. Produced by the School of English, The Red Wheelbarrow gives new writers the chance to have their work read alongside recognised names ensuring a vibrant mix of styles with a consistently high standard of writing.

Now in its third edition, the magazine was launched by Chris Jones and Hugh Martin in October 1997 and is currently edited by Hugh Martin, Lilias Fraser and Kirsti Wishart. As well as welcoming contributions from staff and students throughout the University, it also accepts submissions from further afield in the UK and beyond. To date, the magazine has featured works from, amongst others, Edwin Morgan, Douglas Dunn, Jo Shapcott and Don Paterson. The current issue includes poems from Alan Warner, Ruth Padel and John Burnside, together with less well-known poets and those who rarely submit their work for publication.

Issue 3 (ISSN no. 1462-2998) is available at the cost of £2.50 from the School of English on telephone (01334) 462666, from local bookshops or via email address [email protected].
