Darragh and Inman – still time for questions

Our interviews with Tina Darragh and P.Inman will take place next week and we are still open to any questions you would like us to ask them. Questions submitted so far cover topics as diverse as politics, the nature of l=a=n=g=u=a=g=e and how to survive as  experimenters and innovators in the 21st century. If you would like to add anything to the pot or just give the pot a big stir, get in touch with us at

Poetic speciation and diversification

“Or, Why I am Alarmed at the Role the Academic Environment is Playing in Contemporary British Innovative Poetry

I like using an analogy made by Andrew Duncan to explain the disparate heterogeneity of contemporary British poetry: the SciFi topos of centuries-long space-missions, venturing out from the home planet to reach different stars, and establishing their own separate lineages and cultures. These increasingly diverge from each other and become unable to intercommunicate.”

An interesting perspective from Peter Philpott.
