Mark Pirie's poems published in the IJML

The July issue of the International Journal on Multicultural Literature, Vol. 6, No. 2, India, edited by Professor Dr.  K. V. Dominic (English poet, critic, short story writer, editor) includes two of my poems.

I was very pleased to have been included among many learned contributors in a refereed and fully indexed international journal.

The poems had a special connection to two countries: Bangladesh and Nepal. One poem was on the devastating Nepal earthquake last year, which occurred around the time of Prince Harry’s visit to New Zealand. The second poem, another cricket poem of mine, focused on Bangladesh’s wonderful opening ceremony at the 2011 ICC World Cup.

Earlier this year Professor Dominic also published my interview with the New Zealand poet, reviewer, interviewer and editor Patricia Prime (see IJML, Vol. 6, No. 1, January 2016).

Patricia Prime’s fine poems also feature with mine in the above-mentioned July issue of the IJML.
