Great Works' final issue

Peter Philpott's online magazine, Great Works, concludes publication with its current issue, number 16. I'm sorry to see it end, but its continued existence online will provide good reading for some time to come (as I always have catching up to do). Editor Peter Philpott was one of the first people in the UK to show an interest in my work in a poetics of consciousness and to ask to publish some of it, and I've always been grateful for that as well as for his encouragement of many another emerging poet.

So peruse issue 16, which includes interesting new work by Matt Bryden and Sophie Mayer, among numerous others.

    Hi Carrie - what is 'a poetics of consciousness'? Is it a new coining, an academic term, a factional term? What would a poetics of unconsciousness be?

  2. Hi, Roddy. It's not my term, but Lyn Hejinian's in her book of essays, The Language of Inquiry. I'm afraid I don't have the passage to hand; she talks about it in relation to her own work, as a poetry that, most generally, tries to manifest the experience of consciousness.
