The 76th issue of The Frogmore Papers has just been published and is now available from the Frogmore Press at £5 per copy (post-free). This issue includes all the poems shortlisted by Stewart Conn for this year's Frogmore Poetry Prize, as well a controversial piece of flash fiction that has already raised eyebrows. I left a copy of the issue lying around in my workplace and was informed by a colleague that the piece by Ashley Chantler (editor of Flash magazine) was "the smuttiest thing I have ever read". The managing editor has decided to take this as a compliment.
The splendid artwork, which combines British pub culture with Chinese calligraphy, is by Michael Munday from Lewes.
