About Obsessed with pipework
Obsessed with pipework 18 - cover page     OBSESSED WITH PIPEWORK is a stapled A5 quarterly magazine of new poetry begun in Autumn 1997 as an essential complement to Flarestack Publishing's poetry pamphlet programme, to provide a platform for established or beginning writers' poems that surprise and delight. The editor tends to favour work that may be unsure of itself but is willing to explore untried creative directions. Criteria include authenticity, humanity & the attempt to take off. Predictability, dogma and wordiness will almost always be rejected.
Subscriptions cost £12 for four issues by post. Publication dates are normally at the beginning of January, April, July and October. A single current copy is priced at £3.50. A limited number of back issues is available at £2 each. Postal orders or cheques should be payable to Flarestack Publishing and sent to Charles Johnson, editor, Obsessed With Pipework, 8 Abbot's Way, Pilton, Somerset, BA4 4BN. Overseas subscription details are available on request.

Submissions, of up to six previously unpublished poems at a time, are welcome from anyone writing original poems in English, by post or email. There are no limitations as to length, style or theme, but see above for general preferences. If posted, return postage must be included. Email submissions should be sent in the body of a message rather than as attachments. Contributing poets are invited to send brief but meaningful and readable biography or information on working practice, or both, which may be edited into the Contributors' Notes pages.
