More poems are being submitted which is wonderful and in general they are of good quality so much so I am already up to summer of next year.

I think I may be a bit promiscuous excepting all poems that take my fancy. The magazine needs a tougher selection process. So from next Summer I shall place all the poems I like in a folder and than give then time to ‘prove ‘ so to speak. Nearer the time I shall sit down and decide which should make the cut. In this way I am hoping that the prestige of the magazine will rise to take the place of newly defunct magazines.

I feel this will be fairer to poets by  selecting the best of the best, and then giving them a platform that has a reputation for excellence.  However I will always include the odd ‘ wild card ‘someone who is generally just beginning and whose work takes my fancy.
