'Ouse is a bi-annual print devoted to poetry within the arts.
Ouse has now opened its 'call for submissions' on
the forthcoming Autumn/Winter issue. Guidelines are as follows:
My editorial process will
begin by weighing each poem, individually, to produce a working long
list, before moving on to the critique of each submission, in total,
so as to clarify any inkling or intrigue I have of artistic
intention. Good luck.'
