Eborakon is a poetry magazine based at the University of York, publishing new writers alongside established poets. The name derives from the Brythonic for York, meaning "place of the yews". We value writing that is rooted, both in the resonances of language as it has been used over the course of history, and in the evocation of place. We are nourished by the writers and critics that have preceded us, at the same time branching out to explore the future. Like the yew, for us poetry is mysterious and earthly, real matter that is potentially dangerous to savour.
Please consider submitting a proposal (panel or paper) for next year's conference, "Translation and Transmission in the Early Americas: The Fourth Early Ibero/Anglo-Americanist Summit," which will convene in the Washington, DC, metropolitan area on 19-22 May, 2016.
