It is a magazine dedicated to good poetry in all its forms. As the editors put it, in introducing Issue 4 of the Second Series: It is in the act of writing that the individual is closest to the live nerve of her or his imagination: closest to both subject and language. We are all categorisers par excellence, and many get through life simply by pigeon-holing. The editors of Other Poetry are hoping to discourage that tendency. They are looking for individual responses to life, in poems of intelligence, sensitivity and skill, whether the writers' names be familiar or new, and irrespective of fashions in subject matter and style. The magazine is open to anyone with something to say and an interesting way to say it. Evangeline Paterson, the magazine's long-standing editor and champion, underlined this openness in explaining her decision to relaunch the magazine: We are expressing our right to differ. We are a protest against monopoly and hype. We believe there are many good poems which may not conform to current trends, and we want to see these poems brought into daylight. We believe it is important to maintain outlets, however small, where work can be judged, not by whether it is commercial or fashionable, but by whether it is the authentic stuff of life - perhaps not for everybody, but for somebody; where the work of an unknown writer has as good a chance as that of the established.
