We are very pleased to announce that The Clearing will be launched this week on 16th August with our first selection of new published work by Katrina Porteous. We will continue to publish new work every Friday afternoon from this week on with a great line up of well known, little known and new writers all reflecting on landscape and place in a modern context. Follow us on twitter so we can keep you posted of new pieces (@TheClearingMag) or just drop in on a Friday afternoon and see what’s new.

As of this week we will also be open to new submissions on a rolling basis so if you have an idea for new work concerned with landscape and place in a modern context – prose, poetry, photography, painting, sound art, anything we can publish on the site – then please do get in touch, we would love to hear from you. See our ‘About’ page for more information on what The Clearing is setting out to do, and our ‘Submission Guidelines’ for more details.
