Monkey Kettle is a poetry, prose and arts magazine based in Milton Keynes. Issues are usually 52 pages in length, printed in black and white and released twice a year. The team of writers and artists behind Monkey Kettle also host regular local arts events, theatre productions and gigs in the town.
Since its inception in 1999, Monkey Kettle has made a selling point of mixing the work of local, less experienced writers with that of more established poets. Among those whose work has been included in the magazine are: Barry Tebb ( Poetry of the Underground in Britain); Aoife Mannix (2001 Farrago London Slam Champion); Rogan Whitenails; and award-winning visual artist Steve Groom.
