I love the fact that print magazines still exist for poetry and that there are editors brave and foolish enough to start new ones. Like Regime, a new Western Australian magazine that I was delighted to be included in for issue 1. It was a pretty impressive opening and now issue 2 is coming soon and they say:
Regime Books, an independent fiction and poetry publisher based in Perth’s William Street arts district, is proud to announce that the second edition of Regime Magazine will be launched on 23 February 2013 at the Perth Writer’s Festival.
Regime 02 will be launched by the editors and contributors, with readings by poets Shane McCauley and Roland Leach, and writer Michelle Faye.
The Second Edition of Regime Magazine is an impressive collection of poetry, fiction and performance writing that is Australian in essence, but international in outlook.
Not only are we proud to publish new work by Australian writers such as Geoff Page, Ryan O’Neill, Shane McCauley, Kate Middleton,Andrew Burke, Graham Nunn and Roland Leach (and so many others), we include international voices such as Frederick Pollack, Karla Linn Merrifield, Paul Fauteux and Jonathan Greenhause.
Cover artwork is by acclaimed Sydney artist, Joanna Wolthuizen.
More information can be found by visiting our online launch invitation: http://paperless.ly/YrvwJ1.
Copies of Regime 02 can be purchased from our website: regimebooks.com.au.
If you’re in Perth for the festival get along and support new paper artefacts with poetry inside!
