Since Rupert Loydell first began publishing his adventurous and wide-ranging Stride magazine, not to mention his influential and critically lauded Stride Publications list, he has endlessly discussed poetry, art and music. These ongoing dialogues, whether by letter and email, in pubs, record shops or university seminar rooms, have always informed his own practice and cultural understanding. A selection of these, first published in a number of magazines and journals, are now gathered here together in chronological order. From a field in Cheshire to a quick response internet interview, via Manchester Exchange Theatre and a Fulham basement, these engaging and lively pieces chart a zigzag course through composition, poetics, publishing, inspiration and experiment. Encouraging Signs is a poetics journal and a critical work, with a fascinating element of autobiography.
