Poetry Birmingham Literary Journal
Last night I went to the launch of the first issue of the PBLJ at the Woodman pub near Eastside Park in Birmingham.
The editorial and publication team have done a fantastic job, creating a magazine that's not just full of great content, but which is a beautiful object.
If they continue as they've started they'll create a journal with real heft in the poetry community.
If you want to know more, or even watch the launch performances, you can find more on the VerseFirst YouTube channel or @VerseFirst1 on Twitter.
