“Place” isn’t just elsewhere, of course. It can also be here. While this issue is joyously international, it also celebrates British poets “going local”. And some of the most exciting writing in this issue comes from places which aren’t far away as the plane flies, but whose traditions are far indeed from Anglo-Saxon poetry. Doesn’t so much richness and colour just make you want to book a summer holiday – at home or abroad? — Fiona Sampson, Editor
