Talent-spotting: I spotted Stephen Oliver's work in Virtual Writer, a swish-looking web site for creative writing based in Co. Longford, Ireland.
The theme for the next issue of Proof is 'Build'. No deadline has been set as yet; they accept poetry, short stories, excerpts from novels, script, and we especially welcome work devised specifically for the web which integrates combinations of text, image and sound. The current issue, 'Cool', can still be viewed at www.shu.ac.uk/proof/, along with previous issues. Submissions for consideration by the editorial board should be sent to email@example.com
