I am delighted to have two new poems in/on The Clearing. This site mixes up creative writing with geo themes of landscape, place, the natural world, journeys etc. in a lovely way. The poems are consistently thought-provoking – and if you look hard you will find several other geographers there too. The Clearing is part of a flowering of creative geography/geographical creativity websites, magazines and other outlets that are appearing on both sides of the Atlantic (and presumedly elsewhere). See, for instance, On Site Review based in Calgary (some poems coming out there too soon) at http://www.onsitereview.ca as well as Newfound (http://www.newfoundjournal.org) and the Common (http://www.thecommononline.org/about) based in Amherst MA.
Anyway – here are the poems in the Clearing
