Wendy Webb, founder of Norfolk Poets and Writers (NPW) and editor of TIPS for WRITERS, has brought out issue 67 in memory of a wonderful writer and faithful supporter of the small press poetry scene, Margaret Munro Gibson. I will always associate Margaret with the colour blue (which happens to be my favourite colour). In my opinion, she was a true maestro when it came to the art of writing Haiku in the English language.

The current edition of TIPS includes poems by Alison Chisholm, Norman Bissett and Bernard M. Jackson, to name but three familiar names. It advertises the Margaret Munro Gibson Memorial Poetry Competition 2009 for a 'quality poem not exceeding 20 lines'. It also lists details of the current Norfolk Poets and Writers' Open Summer Poetry Competition 2008.

You can find details of Wendy Webb Books on Dee Rimbaud's AA Independent Press Guide site.
