Rifts, gaps, and one-sided conversations: Notes is back for 2015-16. Ronan Marron and Zephyr Brüggen tell tales of dying, from brutality in ancient epic to contemporary atrocities, while Olivia Scott-Berry’s poem for a friend drifts from The Great Gatsby to The Great British Bake-Off. In the middle of it all, Phoebe Thomson’s cartoon poem is like a game of Memory in which the two cards never quite match up. This issue of Notes is made up of interstices and mourning.
We hope it inspires further discussion, and further work.
