Writers Forum, run by Bob Cobbing, is about to publish its 1000th
publication. N.B. It already has published more than 1000, but this is the
official 1000th publication...
The idea was to produce a pretty big anthology, called ON WORD, edited by
Bob Cobbing and Lawrence Upton, but the money to make it possible was not
Therefore, it is to be published as a part-work with parts coming out every
few months. This is far from ideal, but it *is financially possible and we
hope that many will support it with standing orders so that it brings the
press a regular income.
(All such matters to New River Project, 89a Petherton Rd, London N5 2QT
please, with s.a.e.; though, when I get price information from Bob, I'll
post it here)
ON WORD Part One has an editors' preface; an introduction by Adrian Clarke;
an introduction by Lawrence Upton; and contributions - poetry and
statements - by Adrian Clarke, Karen Mac Cormack, Maggie O'Sullivan and
Subsequent parts will feature statements and poetry.
ON WORD part one will be published next Saturday, 10th March 2001, with a
reading by Adrian Clarke, Lawrence Upton and (to be confirmed) Maggie
O'Sullivan at 3.30 pm at Betsey Trotwood, Farringdon Road, London E C 1.
(The reading will be part of the ongoing workshop series and there will be
workshop activity on that day as well - the exact order of things is up to
Mr Cobbing as always)
