Fulcrum... where intelligence refuses to die!
Poetry in the UK and the US is notorious for its vendettas, closed communities and border disputes. In contrast, Fulcrum displays an exemplary hospitality to a wide range of poetry and practices. It reminds us why and how poetry can matter by opening a literal and conceptual space in which attention can rest on language being brought into activation. Fulcrum is the future.
