In this week’s excellent episode of ‘A Poet’s Guide to Britain’ on the BBC, the poet Clare Pollard is interviewed by Owen Sheers about Sylvia Plath’s landscape poetry. Clare is a member of the Magma team and is currently editing Magma 45, which will be launched in November 2009.
The episode will be available on iPlayer for the next month – watch it online here or you can catch it on on BBC4, Thursday 14th May at 22.00. If you’re in a hurry, you may like to know that Clare first appears 4 minutes into the programme, but it’s well worth taking the time to watch the whole programme.
And while we’re on the subject of Magma in the media, it was nice to see the Evening Standard give us a positive review in an article this week about Little Mags, Big Ideas.
