A compressed sestina in The Crank

A variation on the sestina that I wrote a few years ago has found a home with a new UK literary journal, The Crank.

‘Lost in the Woods’ is the first in a series of poems I wrote, and the most abstract of the three.

The Crank is a rare journal that looks exclusively for work that engages with established forms, something my pattern-loving mind is drawn to.

Read ‘Lost in the Woods’ in Issue 2 of The Crank.

  1. This is wonderful. I shall read them all.

    Can I have your autograph? And do the authors contact each other at all.

    1. That’s so sweet! You can definitely have my autograph. I like the idea of other authors contacting each other, but it only tends to happen if you know each other. A friend of mine from an online course will have a poem in a journal alongside mine later this year, which is really fun!
