Has 2010 brought to your attention any outstanding literary magazines (be they online or in print), if so, which?

I think Ink, Sweat and Tears is a good new online magazine.

What event sticks out in your mind as the literary event of 2010 (it can be a personal accomplishment)?

My lit event of 2010 has to be my massive sale to Transworld – a three novel deal for a six figure sum.

What was your favourite literary discovery of the year (it can be a single poem, a novel, a pamphlet, a press, …)?

I have particularly enjoyed reading Anthony Thwaite’s pamphlet this year, Late Poems, which I think is from Enitharmon but you may need to check. [ed: it is!] An excellent pamphlet!
