morphrog is an online journal edited by Jeremy Page and Peter Stewart. It appears twice a year, in January and July. Originally focussed on poetry, morphrog has in recent issues expanded its field of interest to include translations, short prose pieces, photographs and other visual images, narratives of reminiscence, dream and memory, and other creative media. We particularly welcome submissions from our friends across the European Union, and indeed beyond.
