Paul Stevens, who sadly died in March 2013, was British-born but lived in Australia. He had poems published, in his own words, 'hither, thither and yon' and edited The Shit Creek Review and The Chimaera, as well as serving as a selection panelist on the sonnet ezine 14 by 14.

Random poet

Meg Barton’s first poem was published in the Manchester Evening News when she was 12 – under the pseudonym ‘James Eliot’ – which caused some problems with cashing the resulting postal order.  There was then a rather long gap, and she went back to writing poetry in 2012 – and is now enjoying making up for lost time.
