The Periodicals and Print Culture Research Group (PPCRG) at Nottingham Trent University is delighted to welcome poetry magazine editors Naush Sabah, Andrew Taylor and Rory Waterman to the first event of 2021 in our New Directions series.

Our New Directions series of invited guest speakers for 2020-21 focuses on exchanging and developing methodologies across disciplines in periodicals and print cultural research. Hosted online, this occasional series of talks is free and open to all.


This panel draws on the editorial experience of Naush Sabah (Co-founder and Editor of Poetry Birmingham Literary Journal (PBLJ)), Andrew Taylor (Co-editor of erbacce and Editor of the blogzine M58) and Rory Waterman (Co-editor of the former poetry magazine New Walk, now New Walk Editions) to discuss their editorial practices and policies.

Chaired by Professor Andrew Thacker (co-director of the PPCRG), who will act as a first respondent, the panel seeks to stimulate conversation about editing poetry periodicals in theory and in practice, with a focus on the particularities of editing in the magazine medium.
