The light in your eye,
blonde of your hair,
silent space where once you were,
the death of romance
and tall that says, ‘love.’

What an exceptional and inspiring read. Wonderful poetry. If I had to select one fave, I’d have to say I love Mark Kilburn’s poem ‘The Child We Can Never Have.’
It is here! It is here! It is FINALLY here!
The first issue of Contour was 33 pages and took 9 hours to format. I thought that experience was tough. This issue was framed before submissions closed to give me a head start on production and the poetry element has only ever needed a little tweaking – it was the rest of the pages that tumbled on top of each other through conversion.
I gave up on new-added-page-numbers after the 7th attempt caused major rearrangement of titles and headings.
I stopped counting after 19 hours but it has been an incredible labour of love… and here it is ^^^ as if none of this happened!
All shiny and new and packed with over 50 pages of poetry, news, interviews and more.
Please share it widely and thanks once again for submitting your work.
