Poetry for Cordite 46: NO THEME III is guest-edited by Felicity Plunkett
I am interested in the idea of architecture as a way of capturing the place of a ‘no theme’ issue … amidst Cordite‘s many themed ones. In the architecture of a journal, a themed issue opens a particular window to bring poems in through that filter, and invites particular kinds of art.
A ‘no theme’ issue is an open house, a special and celebratory event where all windows and doors are flung open to allow the flow of creative energies to circulate freely.
I am reminded of Roethke’s line ‘My doors are widely swung’, a darker sort of take, but valid as any in this context.
