These days there's a plethora of poetry magazine web-zines. These are rapidly increasing in number. Long established poetry magazines and journals are in serious danger of disappearing. Postage costs and the rising cost of paper and ink are to blame.
The trend brings with it its own problems. And they are basically these: What can one do when the e-mailed newsletter or poetry 'booklet' is not, for example a straightforward Word Document?
If I can't open the document, what then? And what can I do if I don't have a computer? Or if I have a computer but don't want to download yet more software.
The answer seems to be that I should go to the library and use its computer and printer. That's what poetry journal editors like to tell me. But what if I don't live near a library or even an Internet Cafe´? What then?
