Issue 3 - 'yolk' is live!

So happy to announce that Black Bough issue 3, 'yolk' is now live on the website. Edited by Matthew Smith, with Guest Readers Rae Howells, Mark Anthony Owen and Richard Waring, this edition features 59 poets from across the world.

The edition takes its title from Eliot North's pristine micropoem and features mesmerising artwork from Christina Chin, a newcomer to our press. We'd also like to thanks Ankh Spice, K .Weber and Anne Casey for their stunning photos. This has been a truly collaborative effort.

Sit back, read and bask in micropoetry
