Allegro Poetry Magazine

Allegro Poetry Magazine is an online journal based in the UK and published four times a year.  March and September highlight general poems while June and December publications feature thematic work.

It is edited by British poet, Sally Long. Sally holds an MA in Creative Writing from the University of East London and is studying for a PhD at Exeter. She is a member of the St Albans based Ver Poets.

Editor Sally Long writes, “Issue 15 celebrates that perennial feature of poetry workshops and courses: The prompt. Poets were invited to describe the prompts that gave rise to their poems. The result is an issue that not only includes some amazing poetry but also a selection of ideas that will hopefully inspire new poems.”

Much gratitude to Allegro for including my tanka “Death Bed” in this issue.
