The celebratory 21st edition of morphrog, offering more ‘poetry in the extreme’, is now live at http://www.morphrog.com.
It’s another truly international edition, with contributions from Australia, Canada, Switzerland and several corners of the UK, and featuring poetry by a Californian in Essex, an Italian in Leicestershire and a Scot in London.
morphrog 21 also includes a tribute in verse from Saskatoon poet Gerald Seniuk to long-time friend of Frogmore Henry Woolf on the occasion of his 90th birthday. Henry has been a supporter of, and occasional contributor to The Frogmore Papers since the early days in Folkestone. He was the first person to direct a play by his friend Harold Pinter (The Room at Bristol in 1957), subsequently acting in many of Pinter’s greatest works. Henry has lived in Canada since the 1980s and was Artistic Director of the annual Shakespeare on the Saskatchewan Festival in Saskatoon from 1991-2001. On the occasion of his 90th birthday in January the University of Saskatchewan renamed one of its theatres after Henry in his honour. His memoir Barcelona is in Trouble was published by Greville Press, and number 96 of The Frogmore Papers will feature a new poem in September.
