Poetry is a sacrifice in which words are the victims.

– Georges Bataille

The Sorcerer’s Apprentice is a monthly periodical which explores the relationship between poetry and community. The format of each issue varies: an anthology of texts and images on a single theme; a new translation or contextualisation of a work by a single author; an extended reflection on different aspects of community; or the preparation for an event in which the theme of community is explored in practice. These events typically take the form of a collective reading of texts, but have also engaged in more complex and ritualised activity centred around these readings. In exploring these relationships, this periodical aims to be not only a site of reflection but itself an occasion for the formation of community. The publication of its contents online is an expression of this aim, to which visitors to this site are invited to contribute.

It’s for nights like these that I live in this city, and why, against the best efforts of the home counties bumpkins who have seized control of it, understand nothing about it, are slowly destroying it, and are doing their best to evict me and people like me from it, I will not leave the city of my birth, the city where I was born and raised, and where I live, still, like a foreigner in a strange land.
