[SUBMISSIONS NOW CLOSED] Call for Submissions: Magma 49 ‘Build It Up and Knock It Down’

I’m pleased to be editing Magma 49 and invite you to submit poems on the theme ‘Build It Up and Knock It Down’ as well as poems on other subjects.

I want to read poems about construction and / or destruction, noisy with the cement mixer and the wrecking ball or quiet as the clicking of knitting needles. Send me your poems about bringing something new into the world – or taking it out again. Actual or metaphorical – show me what you make or what you destroy, and how and why.

Please send any queries about the theme to

The deadline is 31 October 2010. Please see the Contributions page for details of how to submit your poems.

  1. Thanks for the invitation, Julia – I’m working on something slightly out of the ordinary which I may submit if I can get the poem to work.
    Bon chance with what will prove to be a fascinating task, I’m sure.
