The Journal of New Writing & Poetry
I’m delighted to have won first prize in the Artificium ‘In Brief’ Competition, see www.artificium.co.uk with a piece which takes a new and original look at the story of Julius Caesar and the Ides of March, using the language and observations of a person nobly of East London vintage. Artificium may be a relatively new magazine, but its willingness to award prizes to an item of comic verse shows a respect for the long and honourable tradition of the genre which other more po-faced magazines and competitions might do well to imitate. Artificium is also a very well produced and presented magazine, the kind that all writers would choose for showcasing their work.
Should you wish to take a trip to the august days of Roman antiquity, keep an eye out for the next edition of Artificium and try a trip to the site – you will find it rewarding. Et tu, Bruce?
