  • Additional info

    We appreciate social and poetic awareness; enjoy what’s spontaneous, strong and direct alongside writing that prompts close and divergent readings. While our central focus stems from the political and socio-economic predicaments of the individual in relation to his/her historical and geographical landscape, Tears in the Fence 
 is open to other human issues and concerns 
 and seeks to be forward-looking in relation 
 to current developments within world poetry. Copies. Contributors receive a copy of the issue in which they appear and can purchase further copies.
