think we'll keep off themes and special issues
for a while. Contributions to Snakeskin
are arriving at an impressive rate these days,
and they are high-quality, too. Putting this
month's issue together, I am very conscious of
not having room for promising work that in
thinner times might have squeezed in. But if
we haven't chosen your work this time, please
do keep on trying.
All kinds of poems are welcome, on any sort of
subject. But I ought to warn you that prose
poems are very unlikely to make it into the
magazine. I know Jessy has included one or two
in issues where she has been in charge as
guest editor, but frankly I can't see the
point of them.
Send your poems to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Two blog posts may be of interest
to potential contributors to Snakeskin .
The first, on "How
Snakeskin Works", explains the simple
procedure by which contributions are selected for
a month's issue.
The second, called "Don't"
offers some tips to novice poets, detailing a few
of the things that might make an editor take
against your work.
