SAND Issue 10

SAND is a journal of poetry in English, published in Berlin on a regular basis. (Good old Germans! So metropolitan.) Anyway, I’m in the latest one. It’s available here. In fact, it has been available for a while, but I’m badly organised. That’s all for now. xxxx

The Rotary Dial Jan 2015

Toronto (or anywhere?) based poetry magazine The Rotary Dial just put its January issue up on the Kindle store for one dollar. If you have a dollar and Kindle and would like to combine the two in order to read one poem I wrote and several other poems that other people wrote, click on this. Thanks!


Hello all. Two of my translations of poems by Rilke just appeared in the new JMWW. Here and here. It’s a special translation-only issue, so lots of other goodies to check out. Bye for now!

Sunlit: Fall 2014

New poem up at Sunlit magazine. Hope it pleases. More coming soon. xx

Vayavya Issue 10: Monsoon

Vayavya is an online magazine out of the state of Jharkhand in eastern India. Their latest issue includes a couple of my poems. More Duke Ellington stuff and a quite flippant little poem about getting ready to leave the house. I am glad to be published outside of Europe and North America for the first time, and especially to be published in India. Indian Independence Day was ten days ago, and happened to be the day on which I got married. Our Indian caterers mentioned that to us some time before the date, and also pointed out that our decorations were orange, white and green, the colours of the Indian flag. Basically, it’s all India right now.

Uppagus Issue 7

New Uppagus is out and free for all to read, and it features a short symmetrical poem I wrote, here. Check out the charming illustrations of Denny Marshall — there’s a gallery of them on the main page. Lots of love, Owen.


Corium Magazine Issue 17

New poem out in the latest online issue of Corium Magazine. It’s fairly tangentially about a man covered in bees. Enjoy!

Potluck Magazine

Three new poems just up at lovely fresh online mag Potluck. Hooray! Plenty of other stuff worth checking out there too. Link.
