A little magazine started by Richard Price in 2001. It appears occasionally and has a print run of 100 copies or less. It is distributed in exchange for only a stamped addressed A5 envelope (two first class stamps cover the postage). This should be sent to: Painted, Spoken, 24 Sirdar Rd, London, N22 6RG.
It is not normally available outside the UK and Northern Ireland in physical form, but digitised back copies are at poetrymagazines.org.uk. Sorry, it is not open to submissions.
Contributors in the past have included S. B.Kelly, Raymond Friel, David Kinloch, Peter McCarey, Alexander Hutchison, Robin Fulton, Donny O'Rourke, Frances Presley, Ken Cockburn, Andrew Duncan, Tom Leonard, Larry Butler, Simon Smith, Gael Turnbull, Hamish Whyte, Dorothy Alexander, Alec Finlay, Jen Hadfield, Douglas Lipton, Edwin Morgan, John Shreffler, Fanny Howe, D. M. Black, Fiona Wilson, Hazel Frew and others.
A prose supplement, PS, co-edited with Raymond Friel, is also published, with recent features on Gael Turnbull and Migrant Press, Stream Records, Joseph McLeod, the architecture of the Elephant and Castle, and interviews with Belle and Sebastian and Darren Hayman.
