My name is Peter Philpott, and I am editor of this site. Great Works carries on the name and traditions of a publishing venture between 1973 and 1979. Great Works published seven isues of a magazine, and a small number of books, aiming at surprise, innovation and delight in writing, especially poetry, hovering on that unstable cusp between modernism and postmodernism.
greatworks.org.uk carries on this idea. It publishes on the Web material sent in to and chosen by its editor, to give a deliberately heterogeneous assemblage, varying between intiguingly innovative practices and effective and direct modernist annotations on our world. Think of Great Works as a constantly changing sample of what some people are writing, filtered through the attention and tastes of its editor, with an ever increasing bank of material appended relevant to the writing it has published.
Since early 2006, it has been produced as discrete bimonthly issues (well, actually that's the plan, but life has often intervened, and twice a year is more accurate), with a bunch of fresh texts, plus those from the previous issue and a few more, emphasised on the site's homepage, but with all previous material to date available in the Archive. There is also a separate site, www.modernpoetry.org.uk, laden with information about the sort of poetry (in its British context), Great Works publishes.
