The High Window is a quarterly review of poetry co-founded by David Cooke and Anthony Costello. Its aims are wide-ranging and non-partisan. It publishes work in English by new and established poets from The UK and around the world. Alongside a lively and eclectic mix of poetry, each new issue will contain an editorial, a literary essay, a selection of poems in translation, poetry reviews and occasional features. In association with its journal, The High Window Press will publish chapbooks and anthologies by poets who are up and coming or, in the opinon of the editors, may have been unduly neglected. The High Window‘s Face Book Page will contain further news, updates and links that may be of interest to its readers.
