Denise Nestor Adam Marek Visual Verse
This month’s ‘visual’ is by the artist Denise Nestor whose exquisite pencil drawings have appeared in The New Review, the New York Times and have been published by Curved House EditionsAnd this month’s lead ‘verse’ is from award-winning writer, Adam Marek, whose work has appeared in magazines and anthologies including Prospect and The Sunday Times Magazine, The Stinging Fly and The London Magazine, and in anthologies such as The Best British Short Stories 2011 and 2013His short story collections The Stone Thrower and Instruction Manual for Swallowing are published in the UK by Comma Press, and in North America by ECW Press.We also feature new writing by Kristen Kreider who, as part of the collaborative pair Kreider+O’Leary, exhibited the work Light Vessel Automatic at Performing Architecture at Tate Britain in 2013 and Edge City at the Lisbon Architecture Triennale in Lisbon from Sept-Dec 2013. Her academic monograph Poetics and Place: the Architecture of Sign, Subjects and Site is out now.Writing by Olivia Dawson, whose poetry has been published in Magma and Matt Bryden, whose first collection Boxing the Compass was published by Templar in 2013, demonstrates again how elastic the imagination is, how powerful the art of expression, how infinitely surprising the meeting of art and words can be.

We’re pleased to announce new features on the site – you can now see your own contributions from each month by title or by your name all in one place. We are also doing our best to bend WordPress to our postmodern wills – it takes time, so the more simple you keep your formatting, the easier it still is for us – nevertheless, we are doing our best to publish all kinds of writing – poetry, fiction, life writing, witnesses, all of it in response to some astonishing contemporary art.

So here is March, dear writers, to be filled with your responses. 50-500 words and written within an hour. The image is the starting point, the rest is up to you. Thank you for your support!
